I'm due at the beginning of July and I'm interested in finding a student doula for my second birth.
With my first child I didn't have one BUT I had an AMAZING nurse that did an exceptional job in calming/talking me through each contraction. Unfortunately, that was at LIJ and they don't take any midwives there and that's the route that i'm going this time.
So, I thought I'd ask if anyone knew of any doulas in the nassau area. A student will be good. $$ is tight right now. Hopefully someone can refer me to a good one.
If you're still looking for a doula:
I'm not a student but rather a very experienced doula and Labor and Delivery nurse (funny, I actually just resigned from LIJ's L&D today to switch to a hospital closer to home). But I have an opening in July and am willing to work on a sliding scale and/or offer a payment plan.
I live in Suffolk, but serve Nassau as well.
There's no where you can be that isn't where you were meant to be, its easy
