Hi, I'm pregnant with my second boy, due Feb 16, and I'm considering a doula for the birth. My first boy was breech, had to have scheduled c-section, never went into labor. So this will be new to me! I'd like to have a natural birth, will be delivering at Sparrow. I'm using a very vbac/natural birth friendly OB.

Anyone have a doula they recommend in the Lansing area?

If I were in your shoes, I'd take a childbirth ed class from Heather Paris at The Greenhouse (she teaches hospital birthers there), and then hire her as your doula. She is wonderful in every way!

I love Heather too. She's great. I want to also recommend Connie Perkins. She's a really fantastic doula. I just attended a birth with her last night (I was the midwife). She is on here as conniebonnie, if you wanted to contact her.

I'm also just seeing this, but we had Mitzi Montague-Bauer and loved her!
