Looks like DONA has a couple in your area....give them a call! Best wishes on your birth. <a href="http://www.dona.org/search/results.php?nav=6" target="_blank">http://www.dona.org/search/results.php?nav=6</a>

ALACE has listings in Stockton, Walnut Creek, and Sacramento. I know Sacramento's kind of far, but Stockton may not be too far...check it out, here's the link...<br><br><a href="http://www.alace.org/referrals.asp?state=CA&Submit=GO" target="_blank">http://www.alace.org/referrals.asp?state=CA&Submit=GO</a>

Thanks to all of you for your help and information, as a first time Mommy and in a town where you haven't any family, it's hard to know who to blindly trust with the birth of your child. You've all been so kind and generous, I can't thank you enough for your info and good wishes...may God bless you all...any and all information and resources are greatly appriciated....I am also looking for a pediatrician, so recomendations for that would also help, as so far I've only gotten some from my Dr. Thanks again to all and have a great day...Lisa

I'd look in "Finding your Tribe" for the pediatrician recommendations...there should be more mamas there in your area who have experiences with the docs and hospitals you'd need to know about.

Hey Lisa Rae - that's my name too! I am in San Jose (small world) and a doula, though Modesto is too far for me. I just couldn't resist posting because we have the same name (Lisa Rae is my first and middle names).<br><br>
If you still don't find a doula you like based on the recs above, private message me and I will help out.
