<p>Hi!  Just found out I'm expecting #2 and admittedly I didn't "prepare" as much for #1 as I wished I had after the fact.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm interested in hiring an (experienced, certified) doula, finding someone to do placenta encapsulation (that has experience working with my hospital and can help me through the process), and finding a lactation consultant to come to the house post-birth (I had one last time that was ok but she was a little intense for me).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I deliver at Vanderbilt, if that helps.  Not due until the end of the year but I'm a planner, so any suggestions are much appreciated!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Nashville Birth Network has a good list of birth professionals. It's a good starting point. Also, if you're on facebook, you can inquire for referrals from the Nashville Birth Network group or the ICAN of Nashville page. :)</p>

Hi Alisa,<br>
I've been a birth Doula for over ten years and have done many births at Vanderbilt. I can also refer you to ladies who provide the other services you are looking for.

<p>You may also want to post on the Improving Birth page for Nashville. There are probably some people there that align with what resources you are seeking: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/rallyforchangenashville" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/rallyforchangenashville</a></p>
<p>Hope you connect with the support you desire!</p>
