After attending the DONA Doula workshop a few weeks ago, I am ready to start attending births. So far, I have two people who have expressed interest in having me attend their births. One is expecting at the end of June/early July, and the other is...well...I can't really say yet. :o) (NOT me)
In order to get my name out there, I am trying to design a logo, an eye-catching flier and a sophisticated business card. I also would like to use this blog as a resource for potential clients, which is why you may have noticed I changed my URL. I used to be http://fledglingdoula.blogspot.com/ and now I am http://keendoula.blogspot.com/. I am still trying to decide on a business name. What do you think of "Keen Doula Care?" I mean, it is kind of cool that my last name is so nifty, right? And no one can get mad because it's my name, right?
This leads me to the reason why I am trying to get business cards and fliers made. I am looking for those first births to attend! I did not feel ready to attend any births until I had my training. Plus none of them would count towards certification until after my training.
I am located in the Rosenberg/Richmond area and I am willing to travel to Sugar Land, Houston and surrounding areas. Another plus, although I am very new at this, I am going to offer my services for a very modest fee until I am fully certified. That's right! You'd have a doula for a very low cost, and I would ask is for some pictures, a testimonial and/or thank you card to put in my albums for future clients to see. You know when you go to your prenatal check ups and/or pediatrician's office and you see all those cards and thank you notes plastered on the walls? Yup, that's what I am looking for.
If you are willing to be a pampered guinea pig at your upcoming birth, please consider me. I would love to be your doula!
