Hi, can anyone recommend an excellent doula for the Naperville/Bolingbrook area? I am due at the end of March and planning my second home birth. I would love to find someone I can really connect with...the doula I used the first time was competent, but I think I can find a better match. I think I will need lots of positive verbal encouragement as this isn't my hubby's strong suit. I am spiritual, but not at all religious (if that makes any difference) and would love to find someone I could feel really comfortable with. Thanks in advance for any suggestions! <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> <3 k

<p>My Bradley Method teacher is a doula (and assistant midwife).  I did not use her as a doula, but she was so easy to connect to.  I'm still friends with her even though I took her class in early 2009.  Her website is ababynaturally.com She lives in West Chicago.</p>
