I have been trying to keep my academic side engaged and grounded, while learning how to be a hip mama to my little goddess, by writing articles on pregnancy/birth topics that I may or may not one day try to market out to some of the mainstream pregnancy magazines---goddess knows I think they could use some of my perspective :)
Anyway, if any of you hip mamas would be interested in possibly being quoted in what I am writing up on doulas email me privately with your thoughts/experiences on/with doulas or answers to the following questions:
How did you hear about doulas?
Why did you choose to or not to hire one for your birth?
How did having a doula present impact your birth experience?
Is there anything else you think I should know about how you feel about doulas?
Thank you for any insight that you can provide. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I will email you back with exactly what I will quote you as saying prior to using it. Thank you for your participation in my learning experience.
