just got laid off, so the homebirth with midwife i was hoping for is out of the question (it was already going to be tough coming up with the $4500 -- now it's impossible).

so, now i'm hoping to at least have a doula at the birth. i had so many choices and a difficult time choosing a midwife, but i'm really overwhelmed about how to find a doula. where we live is accessible to los angeles (east), orange (north), san bernardino (west) and riverside counties (west) any recs?

mother is a verb

Hi there Mama,
So sorry about the lay off. Times are hard and that's especially true here in SoCal.
I'm a doula here and would love to chat with you about your upcoming birth.
My website is in my siggy and I'll pm you my info.

Were you talking about Davi? I was just there yesterday and she told me about a service of doulas who work on donation because they are in midwifery school. I need to look into it for myself but she said they were called Bean Babies or something like that.

Call Bini Birth in NoHo... Ana Paula Markel, who is a doula extraordinaire (among other things) started this place, they refer doulas and train them there...

That was it! She didn't write it down so I interpreted it as "beanie" instead of "bini."
