Now that I'm pregnant, I actually get to REALLY get my hands dirty with this whole natural child birth thing! I had given an intro a while back.
I'm Pamela, and the delivery of DS was a nightmare to say the least. I was induced for BP issues and was in labor for nearly 40 hours, having pitocin, numerous IV pokes, 2 epidurals (both which failed!) an episomedy and a 3rd degree tear. :eek: needless to say, it was quite stressful.
So this time, I'd really like to deliver natural- since I pretty much did it last time with the most extreme pain conditions anyway. The leader of my bible study is a doula and I was just looking for feed back on if people have used them before. I will be delivering in a hospital, so I think I would like the support to help me keep my head on straight when things get rough!
Any stories you'd like to share about your doula experiences would be wonderful! Thanks!
