2019 has been an amazing year so far for my doula work! I’ve had about 30 clients in the first half of this year (wonderful!) and they have been a real mix of women – from first time mothers, to those on their 4th babies, with natural births, medicated births, c-sections and VBACS included! It’s also been great to go to so many different hospitals this year so far, too. The hospitals I’ve been to this year include:
Nisseki (in Hiroo)
Tsuchiya clinic (in Fuchu)
Minato Red Cross (in Motomachichukagai, Yokohama)
Oshio Women’s Clinic (in Urayasu)
I also had the fantastic experience of a home birth, supported by midwives from Matsugaoka Birth Center.
As I’m going to be away for 6 weeks until the end of August, I plan to write up in more detail about the various different hospitals I’ve listed here, as well as others I’ve been to in previous years that I haven’t already written about.
Please feel free to email me anytime if you have questions about doula support (birth, preparation or breastfeeding). My schedule has a little room to take on a few more clients from September to December, and I have a wide open 2020 calendar too!
