Labor Assistants and Doulas of Memphis (TN) : LUSENET : Doula.Com General Discussion : One Thread

Hi there,

I recently attended an ALACE labor assistant certification workshop in January 2002. I am in the process of becoming certified, attending births, reading books, talking to other labor assistants and doulas. I became convinced that we all need to work together as professionals, and I would like to invite all labor assistants, doulas or any other labor support persons in the greater Memphis area, to join my email list and visit my new webpage.

I am hoping that we can form a support group in Memphis.

Looking forward to your response!

Sincerely, Amelia Tummalapalli (contact me through A

Hello, Amelia

I am currently working in the field of labor and delivery at a hospital in michigan. I am interested in finding out what I would need to become a doula in memphis. I have been thinking about relocating? please inform me on what certifications for your state if it is an issue different from my current state.

Thank you

Hey Amelia, I relocated from Beaufort, SC last October. After 13 years of insurance....I quit and followed some good advice and my heart. I am 1/2 way through massage therapy school and I feel a pull to work with pregnant women. I live in Collierville and would like some guidance, maybe someone to shadow. I chose pregnancy massage/Doulas as my presentation topic in school. I need some help! Please contact me with any thoughts. Marie
