In the past two years I've become really passionate about childbirth... and all things related to it. So, I have decided to look into becoming a doula and child birth educator. When the kids get a little older, I may try to become a midwife. I never hired a doula during my pregnancies because it always sounded so expensive and it also seemed as though doulas were for women who had husbands that weren't as involved. I now see that neither are true and I may have benefited from having a doula. Some doulas operate on a sliding scale and some doulas in training even offer their services for free.
Because of my experience as a pregnant teen, I would like to help out other pregnant teens. It is really tough to go through pregnancy as a teen for a whole variety of reasons. I know there isn't much money to be made as a doula, especially not as a doula to teens, but I can help out a pregnant teen at least once every month or two in addition to regular, paying, clients.
