another for more options is <a href="http://www.alace.org" target="_blank">www.alace.org</a>..... the great things about ALACE doulas is that they are certified to check blood pressure, heart rate, baby's position and can do vaginal checks to see how far dilated you are if you are laboring at home. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

<a href="http://www.bellywomen.net" target="_blank">www.bellywomen.net</a> is another great website. it's geared toward finding free or low cost doulas. you can also post a "wanted" ad, if you like, and have local doulas contact you.<br><br>
best of luck!

Not exactly... ALACE is a GREAT organization, and some of their doulas have the skills to do these, but ALACE doesn't certify anyone in those clinical skills.

WOW, I hope others don't think that ALACE doula's can do these skills! ALACE doula's have an introduction into those things but have to sign an agreement stating that unless they have further training from another organization to do vaginal exams etc that they should not do them. They are shown those things to make them familiar with what a mother will be going through...not to perform them on her clients.
