Cheryl- i will talk to my midwife on the 22nd about a doula and go from there. I think I will need a post partum doula as i do not have any help here, though a girlfriend will stay with me for a few days (DH is never a good help, i can hope for him to come around when baby is born, but i am not going to hold my breath!). Are there doulas who assist at birth and then provide services post partum?[/b]
yep- loads. I do both birth and PP doula work.

I think it's especially nice to have the same person for both, that way you have a real continuity of care, and a lot of trust built up.

Many birth doulas may also offer PP work if you request it, but may not advertise it.
