this sounds heavenly.

we had a birthing doula with our last baby and she was great. we'll have a birthing doula with this one as well, and i believe you can have them (at least certain ones) come to your house to check on you and stuff. i'll have to look into it. the dona website says that there there are no postpartum doulas in my area.

thanks for the info susan.
