A note about email!
Thanks for your email and your interest in Radical Doula! I get a high volume of email and unfortunately often take a long time to reply (sometimes more than 6 months). I do try to reply to every email I receive, but it can take a while. Radical Doula is a labor of love, so thanks for your patience.
Below you’ll find directions to resources that relate to frequently emailed questions, just in case these help you get the answers you’re looking for more quickly.
Otherwise I’ll respond as soon as I can, and thank you for reading!
