Doula recommendations for Seattle Area?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking into finding a doula for my late November delivery at Swedish Ballard.  Does anyone have recommendations for doulas? 

Thanks!

Kari

  • I used Erin Elkins http://www.brighteyedbeginnings.com/fees.html

    LOVE HER!!! She was in the learning stages for our birth, but hands down.. LOVE HER. I couldn't have asked for a more positive experience. 

    Me = 39 DH = 50 TTC (since 01/2009 after a short break, I stopped counting *cycles* in 2010)
    DX 2010 : Unknown Infertility , AMA
    HSG 2005 = Normal / HSG 2010 = Normal
    SA 2005 = Normal / SA 2010 /2012 = Slightly low count : motility, morphology GREAT!
    Chromosomal analysis, MTHFR, ANA's, Lupus, Protein C, Protein S, APCR = Normal 2011

    M/C : 2005 (7wk), 2010 (6wk), 2011 (7wk)

    8 IUI's 2010-2011 all BFN

    IVF/ICSI antagonist 01/2012 #1 = BFN

    IVF/ICSI antagonist long 06/2012 #2 = BFN

    IVF/ICSI/CGH MDLF New Clinic/New RE 11/2012 #3 = One beautiful boy blasty frozen PGS normal

    IVF/ICSI/CGH MDLF 02/2013 #4 = One more beautiful boy blasty frozen PGS normal

    FET 6/20 : One 5AA PGS normal transferred Beta 1 6/28 = 53.9 / Beta 2 7/1 = 220 / Beta 3 7/3 = 550!

    1 U/S  6w3d - Heartbeat 119 /  2 U/S - 7w5d- Heartbeat 169 / 3 U/S (OB) 8w5d - Heartbeat still great!

  • I had 2 doulas with me when I delivered! Katie Rohs at birthtastic and Anna Morin. I hired Anna initially, but as it turned out her 1 an only other client that month went into labor just before me so I had her back-up Katie join me at the beginning-- she is also fabulous. I took so long to have my son that Anna joined us before my son was born. I would recommend them both equally. I was at Swedish First Hill.

    IVF #1 ET 1 d3 embryo 10/30/11 BFP
