My awseome doula who I had for both of my daughters births is single and has no children. She is an *awesome* doula. If that's what you want to do- go for it! Doulas rock!! :D

I've never been a terminal patient, but I'm darned good at caring for people in that condition, as well as their families. You don't have to have "been there, done that" to be a good caregiver........all you need is the desire and the willingness to work hard. GO FOR IT!!!!!! :yelclap:
