Hay ladies Im a birth doula, and think every woman should have one.
I am having a homebirth with my third and Im not so sure I want to hire one this time around.
Sadly my last 2 doulas were not amazing and I feel I deserve to have the kind of doula I am- giving 110%.
Part of me thinks I have enough support with my midwife, hubby,mom etc.
Then the other part thinks, is that "bad business" or marketing if I dont have a doula?
I really picture my birth being AMAZING and I know that I will 'talk myself" thru some things and depend on my husband and midwife to do the rest.
The other side of me thinks, there is always the unexpected and what If my husband gets tired or I really need a professional??
WHO IS A DOULA THAT HAS HAD BABIES, did you have a doula or not and why?
