Can anyone give a personal recommendation for a good doula in the San Antonio area? I had a wonderful doula from Austin for my first delivery, but I'm having a really hard time finding someone who has used the services of a doula in S.A.!

What can I do next?

Hi N.,
I am an apprenticing midwife and postpartum doula in the San Antonio area. There is a wonderful website www.sanantoniomidwives.org and there is also a doula group www.doulasupport.com that can lead the way to a good doula. There are also many wonderful midwives in the area if you decide to have a homebirth. San Antonio has a new birthcenter off of Wurzbach in the medical center area if you are seeking a birthcenter birth www.birthcentersa.com.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns, pregnancy and birthing are my favorite subjects!
Blessed birthing,
T. Schiebel

I used Suzanne De Leon and she was wonderful. I had a great birth experience! I also used Lonestar Midwives if you are looking for a midwife. They were very supportive and let me have the birth my way, which is hard to find in SA. Good luck and let me know if you need more info.
Suzanne's # is ###-###-#### and her e-mail is [email protected]____.com
Hope that helps!

Hey N.,
Have you tried contacting the Local La Leche League? Seems like when I was attending meetings some of the moms there knew of doulas or in fact were being trained to be a doula. You also might try contact one of the Bradley Class teachers. My teacher, Heather Bayles, knew of some excellent doulas. I've lost her email address otherwise I would pass it along to you. I was going to use a doula but ended up having an emergency c-section with footling breech baby coming 2 weeks early.

Best of luck to you,
