Looking for a Doula or Lactation Consultant in Your Area? Check MamaViews First.

Let me admit something here at first.  When I was pregnant with Sophia I had no clue what a Doula, Baby Nurse, or Lactation Consultant was or did.  I was clueless.  I knew you went to the hospital and had your baby because that’s what everyone else that I know did.  Luckily I did find out what a Lactation Consultant did after attending my hospital’s Childbirth Classes, but that’s as far as my knowledge went.

Once I found my way into the Attachment Parenting world that crunchy and cloth diaper blogs so often represent, I learned a lot more.  A lot.  I had no idea that people still had home births or that you could hire someone to go through the birthing process with you.  I so wish I could go back and have had a Doula with my first pregnancy and birth!


All I can say is I wish I had known about then too.  Not only would I have learned what a Doula and Baby Nurse do, I would have been able to search for recommended service providers right in my area!

Did you use a Doula?  Baby Nurse?  Lactation Consultant?  How important was their role to you?  Planning to use any of the above?


  1. I had my last baby 32 years ago, so I did not know about home birthing, Doulas or baby nurse. I was given a number of a lactation consultant and used it when my youngest was not thriving on my milk. I have a friend whose daughter just had a baby at home and though her labor was 32 hours long, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. One thing I learned that I also didn’t know about was baby chiropractors. The young lady I just told you about had her baby adjusted 3 separate times during the week after the baby’s birth. It got rid of the baby’s stuffy nose immediately. There are many other things a chiropractor can do for babies too.
