My friend is a doula for Embracing Babies

Thanks for the resource! I wonder if she/they assist with hospital births, homebirths or both. Don't see that on the site. I'd really like to go to a birthing center but haven't found one near me.
OrangeGrove:Thanks, Hartz! I'll check out her site. I was thinking a birth center would be ideal, but there isn't one close to me that I know of I'm in Altadena. Looks like Whittier is the closest. Which ones did you check out?
hartz09:We went to the one in Whittier and also met with a midwife who was in the process of opening a birth center in Silverlake (gracefullbirthing.com). I don't know whether it has actually opened yet, but it was in the works.
Thanks, Hartz! The site indicates they will open in Nov 2013! Sounds like it will be great. Maybe I can be one of their first customers ;P
