Anyone know of one? I've found several doulas in bakersfield but none seem to be Christian (at least I don't see it on their websites). Im 5 weeks pregnant and I'll be attempting a vbac, so I feel like a doula would be very helpful for me after what I went through with my daughter.
43 hours of total labor and got an epidural 28 hours in due to extreme exhaustion then oxytocin because I stopped progressing after getting the epidural. I finally dilated only to push for 3 hours be told I needed a csection. It turned out she was very poorly positioned. Trying to come out cheek first result in some neck issues and requiring a helmet for three months when she was a little older.
I really feel like a doula would help me and I know my husband would be supportive if I told him that's what I want, but I haven't brought it up with him because I just haven't found a Christian doula yet.
Edit- I'm sorry if this is in completely the wrong place. I'm still learning the website though. This is very different from any other forum/internet community I've ever been a part of and I've been on a lot. I like it already though and I'm getting used to it.
