May is International Doula Month


I am so excited! Next month, the month of May, is International Doula Month - a time to raise awareness of these wonderful women and the role they play, a time to show your appreciation for those doulas who have attended you, or to show appreciation for those doulas whom you work with on a regular basis.

For this reason, I am hosting an amazing, 2 week long, giveaway extravaganza. This giveaway is open to:
  • Doulas
  • Women who have had/have a doula whom they want to show appreciation by winning a gift for them
  • Professionals who work with doulas whom they would like to show appreciation by winning a gift for them
If you fall into one of these categories, then, in the first two weeks of May, be sure to check on this blog for numerous chances to win. AND, in the spirit of giveaways, please feel free to take advantage of these three ‘early bird’ entries...

The three early bird entries are simple:
  • Post on your Facebook wall, with a link back for my blog, talking about the upcoming giveaway, then comment below... 1 early bird entry to be redeemed at your discretion (further details will follow)
  • Post on your own blog, with a link back to my blog, talking about the upcoming giveaway, then comment below with a copy of your posts link location... 1 early bird entry to be redeemed at your discretion (further details will follow)
  • Email me at deelahthedoula (at) gmail.com (if you are a mama) your birth story with your doula or (if you are a doula) a birth story from one of your clients, then comment below. I will post the story you share sometime in the week of May... 1 early birth entry to be redeemed at your discretion (further details will follow)
Please note, you must submit a separate comment for each early bird entry for each to be counted.

The early bird entries will close on April 30th at 11:59pm Pacific.

We will have a total of 13 different vendors giving some awesome, birthy stuff away, so be sure to check back in the first two weeks of May for these great items! We will have magazine subscriptions, slings, balms, Doula bag accessories, Doula accessories, and more!

I am looking forward to gifting back to all of you wonderful doulas out there, and remember, mamas and professionals, hug your doula!

I was blessed with 2 wonderful doula's with my last pregnancy! One antepartum and one birth. They made a very challenging high risk pregnancy as easy as it could be.

I'm so glad this month for doulas exists! I think they are so important to so many women! For me I felt I needed one as a first time single mama to be with no support from my babys father or my own family. I really don't want to do this alone so I'm glad I could find a doula willing to help me out for an exchange/barter instead of money that I just don't have. I'd love to win something nice for her if I can.

I posted a link on my facebook page and will my friends about this blog as well!

What an awesome idea! I loved my doulas and I am a doula myself, though I mostly only shoot professional birth photography these days. :)
