Who are the doulas who volunteer with the BADP? They're amazing, diverse people, doing so much great work in the world that it's hard to believe any of them has time to volunteer with us. In the coming weeks we'll use this space to introduce you to many of these doulas.
I'll start this week with myself, since I've been making most of the blog posts here without having properly introduced myself. Watch this space for an upcoming profile of Kelly Nichols who's joining me in managing the blog, followed by lots of other BADP doulas.
