Does anyone have any personal recommendations for a Doula in Chicago? I have contacted Malik Turley and she is booked during my due date time. I am hoping to find someone via word of mouth instead of just randomly calling people from the DONA website. I do have a call in to Birthways to discuss what they provide, but I am not sure they will work with my home birth provider (she is an unlicensed DEM). Any info would be much appreciated! TIA

I haven't used her, but have met Lisa from www.ababynaturally.com and she seems really great.
