Today is the 3rd birthday of Radical Doula.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been three years already. I’ll be doing a few things today in honor of the bday, but let’s start it off some fun facts about Radical Doula:
I’ve written 314 posts, with 585 comments from all of you! This post got the most comments, this one got the most hits.
My highest trafficked month was January 2010.
My busiest day was Wednesday March 5, 2008, after I posted this piece responding to a doula bashing article in the NY Times.
Radical Doula has 227 fans on Facebook, and 103 followers on Twitter.

Just a quick note to say that while I didn’t know about your blog back then, March 5 2008, your site’s busiest day, is the day my son was born – in a fantastic, doula-assisted hospital birth. My doula made all the difference, and I’m so glad she was there. Thanks for your work advocating for doulas, and for reproductive justice.
