I'm a doula here in Western MA and I would be glad to talk to you about the choices of providers here (home, hospital, CNM, OB). I can definitely answer most of the questions you posed if you want to give me a call - 413.522.3949. Or my website is www.BellyfullBirth.com.
Happy to point you in the right direction :)
So part of that was for you Marissa, if you want to offer anything on the PWH vs Holyoke(in Noho) choices. And the rest i just had to get off my chest. Maybe you have experience seeing emotionally how these experiences with people we dont trust can affect outcomes, so i thought i would share. Maybe my hormones are making it all seem exaggerated in retrospect...but i am sick of going all the way to PWH. I dont know how i am supposed to figure out the difference between these programs, i researched it, looking for opinions, but its all so personal, its hard to tell. Are they basically the same? How are they different? PWH has midwives that used to be homemidwives, what about holyoke? Still no people of color? How depressing. What i want is for them to mainly leave me alone, let me turn lights off, not stare at me or be around the whole time, kind of as if they werent there at all, unless i need them. And not rush me or talk too much aroundme .
