Anyone have a doula they loved and would recommend? I'm looking for a doula for my first birth. I'm due around January 31. Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:

I used Jodi Spencer for my birth last month. She's in South Jersey, but just over the bridge (I live in Philly- she got here super quick, too.) Jodi is fabulous and I can't say enough great things about her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Her website is <a href="http://www.beginswithbirth.com/" target="_blank">http://www.beginswithbirth.com/</a><br>
Good luck. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
