Private Service: I support pregnant ladies in the Bay Area. I live in Livermore. Some pregnant woman really want a doula who lives within 30 minutes of the hospital they will be delivering in, or their home if they are having a home birth. Some pregnant woman are comfortable with a longer driving distance. Of the over 200 ladies I've supported, I've only had 3 first time mommas need me sooner than 2 hours of the first call they made to me when they were in labor.
I live 30 minutes or less from Livermore, Dublin, Pleasanton, San Ramon, Danville, Tracy, Mountain House, Alamo, Walnut Creek, Concord, Pleasanton Hill, Castro Valley, Hayward, Union City, Fremont, Oakland San Leandro.
It takes me about 45 minutes to get to: Milpitas, San Jose, SanFrancisco, Pinole, Lafayette, Berkeley and Martinez.
