Another request for a doula. See below and respond directly to her if you might be a good fit.
I’m a 36 year-old African-American woman, 29 weeks pregnant, due April 1, 2011. My partner and I are interested in finding a doula, perhaps a woman of color, who has real perspective on how pregnancy, childbirth, and mothering interact with race/ethnicity/class/culture. In other words, I feel like there is a particular legacy and experience around black womanhood and black motherhood, and I want to work with someone who has some knowledge and sensitivity around this. And, preferably we’d find someone with experience working with survivors. We are open to both well-established doulas as well as doulas-in-training. Thank you!
