Good Morning:

I am trying to put a list of doulas together for my friend. She will be delivering at Harrisburg Hospital...I tried and tried to get her to birthcare but I think she is a bit fearful of the unknown.

BUT after a lot of reading she has determined to keep her birth the way she wants it she needs a doula. Any reccomendations would be awesome. I have one reccomendation so far, but would like some more as we all know how personal of a relationship a doula must have and all personalities are different.

thanks so much for your help

I used Carrie Zimmers-Naef - happybellies@comcast.net 717-796-3132. She was great during the birth!
Harrisburg Hospital also has their own doulas if she is concerned about going "outside the box" for a doula.

I'm not sure if Maureen Travato (sp?) is still doula-ing, but she is excellent. She was there for my second and third births.
