Hi ladies!<br><br>
I belonged to a Chicagoland email list for doulas, and it was a great way to network and meet other doulas and talk about conferences and update each other on different classes, meetings, etc. I got a lot of work, both volunteer and paid from that Yahoo list. Is there anything like that for the SE Michigan/ Metro Detroit area? I just quit the morning half of my job (am only teaching K half day now) and would like to pick up doula work once again. Right now I would probably only be doing back-up to other doulas (as my time between about 11 AM- 5 PM is limited due to teaching) or I would need a back-up... but I ramble. Anyway, if anyone knows of one, or knows for sure that there is not one and maybe wants to start one, let me know!<br><br>

Clara, don't know how I missed this... I know that there is a <i>midwifery</i> type list, don't know what it is, though...I know that going to birth network meetings can be a great way to meet other doulas. Perhaps we should start a list? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Depending on where you are (where are you?), there may be several or very few doulas near by...I suppose we could actually just do a coffee night, if one doesn't already exist? tnrsmom and I spend a lot of phone time decompressing...we started at the same time so we are kind of "growing" with one another. I THINK that the Center for the Childbearing year may actually have a physical support group once a month or something like that...but it's in Ann Arbor and I'm an hour and twenty minutes away, so I've not investigated it...

Oh, Highland. That's not TOO far from me...maybe forty, forty-five minutes. There are a couple of doulas between you and me. One is Wendy Pinter (think I spelled that right). She actually doula'd for my friend this past march and now also apprentices to an area midwife, as well. Maybe we SHOULD get something together...
