Hi there.

My friend is having a baby in June at Crittenton, and really wants a doula. Her husband will be doing an internship in San Diego and may or may not make it to the birth, so her need for a doula is even greater. She is, however, not able to spend much money. Her husband is in school, and they are on medicaid. She would love to find someone who is training, or is willing to do it for very cheap. She is taking a natural birth class right now and is so excited about doing things different this time, but without support, I don't know if she will be able to. If anyone knows of anyone willing to help her out, please let me know so I can send the suggestions on to her. Thanks so much.

Jenny

Doula's Care may be able to help.
