Doula

Is anyone else using a doula?

I have been interviewing doulas the last week and the first few were just idk 'off', they didnt seem very supportive or anything so I was starting to think maybe a doula wasnt for me.

BUUUT, today I interviewed a doula in trainning, her name is Stacy and oh my gosh is she amazing! We hit it off in emails this last week and then had a yahoo chat session this morning. She is perfect! We had an instant click and she isnt going to charge me anything but I offered to pay her fuel because she is over an hour away! :eek:

We had such a great conversation and I am so excited to start planning my birth with her. (: Yahoo

glad you found someone you clicked with. we are not b/c hubs really doesn't want any extra's in the room. the nurses have been awesome previously (very ncb friendly hosp) so i'm good with it.

Sounds like you just needed to find the right fit for you, enjoy planning your birth Smile

Thanks ma'am! (: Hubby was against having a doula at first but then once I explained why and that she was for ME not HIM, he was all for it lol.

It's great that you found someone!
My friend is a doula in training as well so I will likely use her. She needs the experience and I need the support
