Just got an email from an awesome woman in St. Louis, Missouri who is looking for a radical doula. She is a self-professed sex positive feminist law student (sweet! we need more sex positive feminist lawyers) and here is what she had to say about her experience trying to find a doula so far:
I was talking to a doula that my doctor recommended but as soon as I mentioned a possible orgasmic birth she issued a nervous laugh and I knew something just didn’t feel right. I want to bring my vibrator, massagers and/or sex toys with me to the hospital and really need a doula, but one who won’t be judgmental about my open sexuality.
Rock on! I wish I was in St. Louis. So, if you are in a doula in the St. Louis area, or know someone who is, either post your contact info in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass the info along to her!
PS If you are a woman having trouble finding a doula who is as progressive as you’d like, please email me! I would love to use this site as a way to connect like-minded moms and doulas.
