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 so sorry that I'm just seeing this.  I hope you were able to find someone!

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