Re: Hiring a doula

Thanks, all, for your feedback! No, midwives here in Ontario, Canada are regulated and free of charge just like doctors, so it's a bit different than what a midwife often represents in the US; they don't recommend specific doulas, for example, as that's an unregulated profession (I know there's DONA and CAPPA, but anyone can actually call themselves a doula since parents pay out of pocket). I appreciate the thought, though! I did find 1 DONA certified doula and 1 working towards her certification who will travel to my town and have sent inquiries to them both, based on what you have all said.
