    Default At what point in the pregnancy should one start the search for a doula

    Morning everyone,

    I am now almost 14 weeks pregnant and the thought of involving a doula in my birthing process keeps returning to my mind!

    I am just wondering when is a good time to start talking to prospective doulas?

    Cheerio

    I'd do it early, I get a few people call me as soon as they are pregnant, and some around 13 weeks. Of course you get those last minute ones too who have a last minute freak out LOL but earlier is better as Doulas need to plan everything 9 months ahead of time Plus more time to get to know your doula. Most doulas only do 1-2 births a month due to family commitments so they can book up quick.
