two questions for you:
-do any of you manage to provide doula or midwife services without a cell phone (either because you just don't have a cell phone or you live somewhere rural enough that cell phones don't work there)? if so, how do you make sure that folks are able to easily reach you?
-if you have a backup doula that you use in case something happens and you are unable to make it to a birth, did you manage to find someone who is very similar to you in personality / doula style? or do you feel comfortable having anyone who is trained be your backup?
