My best friend is due 2/28-3/1 and I really want her to have a doula. I planned to be there as her labor coach but with weather and my health issues I do not think I will make the birth. She's bee seeing a Midwife at the place she goes but that doesn't guarantee she is going to be hands off.

Any doula/student doulas that anyone knows of? My friend seems a bit naeive about what it is like to birth in a hospital. I'm hoping if I can find names/numbers she might hit it off with someone and get a better chance of having a natural delivery.

Thanks so much ladies!

If there is a childbirth educator at the hospital, she might be able to put you in touch with some doulas.
