i don't know if you remember but i emailed you earlier in my pregnancy because i am thinking about training to become a doula after my maternity leave. just wondering if i can bee cheeky and ask how much i could realistically expect to bring in each month on average if i do become a doula? and how many women you can "fit" in a month if you know what i mean! lol - as i suppose you don't want to end up with two clients in labour at the same time!! PM me if you don't want to broadcast it to the entire forum. or feel free to tell me to bugger off if you'd rather not say! you see i've just worked out that as long as i bring in a minimum of £500 per month after tax from my freelance design and/or working as a doula, i will be better off than going back to work FT and paying travel costs and FT childcare!
