A doula named Miriam has compiled a great list of volunteer doula organizations around the country. The list came to my attention because our local Austin group, Giving Austin Labor Support, was among those listed. Yay, GALS! :) For those of you who are just beginning your doula journey, volunteer organizations like GALS are a great way to gain experience and to support mommas who can't afford to hire a doula and don't need a lot of fancy techniques or philosophy, just a continual presence and a warm touch.
