i just found this. i thought it was really neat.
doulas are important. especially, i think, for women giving birth in a hospital not by their own choice (e.g. if they don't have the money or insurance coverage to pay for a home birth midwife or a birthing center)
i had an abortion in march, but lately i've been thinking of how if i'd chosen to continue the pregnancy, i might be stuck having a baby wherever i could afford to with medicaid. a doula would be really important to me then.
also, this site is run by two college students, and is not for profit. :D
