So i went to an old friend's welcome home shower for her baby. And Her doula was there. She herself has 6 kids, two homebirths. One dry one wet. And she assists with a midwife in this area!!!!!!! I am so FREAKING EXCITED. So I hooked up with her after the shower and asked her a ton of questions and told her of my birth before.. and she said if I can do a pit labor with out drugs I can do anything I want. She offered to get her midwife in contact with me, and asked me if I had considered home birthing. (which I am a HUGE weanie), so i said no. She then gave me so great tips for flipping an OP baby and OFFERED HER DOULA SERVICES AS A GIFT TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!! I can not tell you how excited I am!

I am girls. I just can not tell you how excited it makes me! She also gave me some great tips for stretching the perinum (sp?), taking certain herbs to prepare for the birth.. and gave me her email address and her phone number. She was also going to consult with her midwife via email (she is in the phillipines doing mission work until november) before she gave me too much advice. She wanted to get a better medical understanding first..

hah- I know a midwife in the phillipines right now- I wonder if it's the same one! How funny would that be....?

That's great that you found a doula- especially for free!
