Hey everyone! I hope you guys can help me out. I have a friend stationed at Fort Polk who needs a doulas. Hopefully for free because she doesn't really even know what a doulas is and I don't think her and her dh would want to pay for it. But even if low cost is an option, I would love to hear some names. Thanks!

Hi, and welcome! Dona has doulas everywhere- you can find a list on their site: Dona.org

ASlthough I don't agree with free doulas for just anyone (although they are great for people who truely could not pay and have special circumstances) they can interview some doulas, read more on dona to find out what a doula does, and then they should be able to see the amazing value and worth.

I am very close to Fort Polk. The cheapest Doula in my area is $400. I have done some research. Her website is http://www.sewsweetbaby.com/DoulaServices.html. Hope this helps.
