PLEASE COME TO LA GRANDE!!! We currently have 3 OBGYN's (all men) and one midwife who travels from Ontario. I am a certified doula (CBI) and haven't been able to really advertise myself, but have had some serious interest whenever I do get to plug "what a doula is." Also, I am currently working on getting into nursing school and from there into the Master's in Midwifery at OHSU so that I can help provide more options in this area.
I'm pregnant and without money or insurance that would cover the cost of the midwife, I don't want an unassisted birth so I get to have another hospital birth.... Very upset, but with two other little ones and being a full time student I dont' see another option.
La Grande needs you, we need more options!
