Still Looking for a Doula / Birthing Partner in West Suburbs. (Due Dec 14) - Hinsdale,IL
I posted this question before but unfortunately got only two responses for doulas that live just as far as Chicago (we are in hinsdale - I am delivering in Downers Grove)... If that's the case I might as well use the same person I had for my other two births.
Does anyone have anyone to recommend??
Are there really no doulas in the west suburbs - close to hinsdale, western springs, clarendon hills, etc...? :-/

Here's a listing of my old neighbor. I didn't use her, but one of my other neighbor's did and really liked her. She's had 5 kids - 4 of them as VBACs with Bradley Method so she is very experienced.

Hi C.. There are lots of doulas in the western suburbs. Go to doulamatch.com and search or if you want to private message me your info I'll post it on our yahoo doula board (I'm a doula in Oak Park) and I'm sure you'll get doulas from your area contacting you.
Congrats and good luck!
