On Doula Dating
It’s totally a thing. At least that’s what I have been calling it!
You have just recently started to look for this magical creature that is, a doula. You got your list of names from your birth class instructor or maybe you’ve asked a few friends for direction. You may have even posted in your mom-group on Facebook hoping someone will suggest a name or two for you to investigate, or searched the web for a doula near you.
You scan websites like background checks. Your interest has peaked.
Now you have some scheduled meetings, or as doula’s call them, consultations.. Your birth class instructor may have (hopefully) given you guidance on what to ask your doula.
All the normal things such as:
What is your philosophy?
What is your approach?
How long have you been a doula?
Why did you become a doula?
What’s your favorite part about being a doula?
