Operation Special Delivery
Operation Special Delivery (or OSD), provides trained volunteer doulas for pregnant women whose husbands or partners who will be deployed ,have been severely injured or who have lost their lives due to the current war on terror, or unable to attend the birth due to military reasons. The doulas that are volunteering are doing so by their own discresion. Doulas have the right to refuse a client due to timing constraints, conflict of interest, etc.
The International Birth and Wellness Project is a health and social service entity designed to educate and support women and families towards a healthier pregnancy, birth, post-partum and parenting experience. We believe that birth is a universal Rite of Passage that joins all people and all generations. In our services to women and families we strive to highlight and blend the most positive, healthy beliefs and traditions of all cultures to create a diverse tapestry of knowledge and techniques that emphasize the importance of the mind, body and spirit connection. We are a collective of health professionals focused on providing holistic services during the childbearing years. Our organization consists of three inter-connected efforts referred to as our circles of influence:
DONA International certification is a widely respected measure of quality and professionalism. We are an international, non-profit organization of doulas that strives to have every doula trained / educated to provide the highest quality / standards for birth and/or postpartum support to birthing women and their families.
For over a decade, CAPPA's mission has been to offer comprehensive, evidence-based education, certification, professional membership and training to childbirth educators, lactation educators, labor doulas, antepartum doulas and postpartum doulas worldwide. CAPPA is proud to provide new and expectant families access to these professionals.
So heree I am after a very long hiatus of only working with close friends and family while I got my nursing degree. I've given up on finding a full time nursing job and took a position with a CNM as her assistant and decided to put my sevices out to the public until I am done with my master's degree. I'm nervous about making my business work. I'm constantly working on learning new skills and adding certifications to my knowledge base. It seems the community of doulas and childbirth educators I live in(Salt Lake City, Utah) has grown dramatically, which is exciting.
Hi, I have just registered with you and want to find out how to make sure that when people search for doulas in my area that my name will show up through doulas.com ?
Hi, everyone, I just joined doulas.com and am looking forward to meeting more of you and gaining insights into this work we all love. I have had a number of life changes in the past year, which have prevented me from becoming more fully involved as a doula - I found that I had a lot to learn about starting a mother-baby business as well! However, I just submitted my labor doula certification packet and am waiting to hear back from CAPPA. Hopefully, this coming summer will see me returning to labor support and to doing what I love to do - working with mommies and babies. Best wishes to you all!
It doesn't seem like there is much interest from Operation Special Delivery in my area. Is there any way to find out if it is being promoted at all?
I was wondering how you can edit your availability calendar on your profile.
Thanks for the help!

toLabor Doula Training in Wilmington, NC
June 29 - July 1, 2012
Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/274963102578926
Help empower women so that they & their babies have the healthiest & best birth experience. Learn an incredible wealth of information. An excellent childbirth education class based in the Midwifery Model of Care and evidence based practices.
The intention of toLabor is to educate and certify professional birth doulas in order that they may help women and their partners become active participants in their birth. To learn how to support them so that they may feel a sense of confidence and power that can be carried forward into their parenting as well as into their daily lives. Pregnancy, labor, and birth serve a purpose ~ to help prepare the way to raise a child.
toLabor believes that all women benefit from support and resources that will help them be aware of, and educated about, the options and choices that are available so that they may make informed decisions concerning their birth experience. We embrace the evidence that a woman who actively participates in her birth will have a healthier birth for her baby, herself and her family; physically and emotionally. We believe that in every birth, there is room for compassion and respect for the process. We believe this a civil right, a human right. We believe in creating and fostering a community of change.
We invite you to attend this powerful workshop coming to Wilmington.
