Call for Radical doulas: St. Louis

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 radicaldoula@gmail.com and I will pass the info along to her!

For previous posts on orgasmic birth, go here. For previous posts on other women looking for radical doulas, here.

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.

    Is orgasm during birth used for pain management (possibly as an alternative to drugs), or is it just considered another positive aspect of the birth in its own right?
    I know orgasms are excellent for pain relief from period cramps, and work much faster than painkillers in that case. Is it similar for giving birth?

    I came across your posting for wanting a doula in the St. Louis area who understands and supports the orgasmic birth process. I could not tell from the post the date of your request. Please post if you’re still interested in finding someone.
