Here is a link describing my services
My name is Donna Sanders and I am the Perinatal Education Coordinator at Pondera Medical Center (Conrad, MT ) and a Childbirth Assistant at the first free standing birth center in the state of Montana, The Family Birth Center (Great Falls, MT).
I am looking to expand my services as a Doula to North Central Montana. I believe that women who are supported - emotionally, physically, and with information - can have an empowering experience as they bring their babies into the world.
Why hire a doula?
* Reduces the incidence of c-sections
* May shorten the length of labor
* Reduces epidural and analgesic requests
* Increases breastfeeding initiation and continuation
* Increases mother’s satisfaction of birth experience
* Can reduce the incidence of postpartum mood disorders
* Increases new parents’ confidence in the care of their newborn

Hi Donna! I was just curious if you could clarify for me which cities you cover? I'd be happy to send people your way, I get all kinds of interesting requests.
(I am a doula in Williston, ND and the surrounding area.)
