Am currently starting to plan a VBAC with #2 due in October. Any recommendations for doulas in the Roanoke, VA area? Thanks!
For future reference, there is a Roanoke & SW Virginia doula directory at www.wellroundedmoms.com. There are a few wonderful choices in the area (Kristen is definitely one of them). I am also a doula, homebirth midwife & childbirth educator in the area - Alicia King 540-382-3031 (email firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Kristen is wonderful! We are fortunate to be blessed with TONS of doulas and midwives in Roanoke, Blacksburg, & the surrounding areas. I know of the following doulas: Lindsay McKinnon, Savanah Songer, Cindy Dobos, Candice Matthis, Cindy Beard, Kristen Gibson, Autumn Vazquez, Lise Martin, Julie Pfeifer, Lindsay Newsome, Sally Faulkner, Jessie Peters,and myself Crystal Fink (formerly Musselman).
The midwives that serve the area (most of them do doula births as well) are:
Certified Professional Midwives (CPM's)
