Anyone have experiences using a Doula?

I used a doula for my first pregnancy and loved it. The woman that worked with me through everything (I was a single teen mom and didn't know if the father was gonna show up or be supportive) was just amazing she taught me about pregnancy every step of the way, if I had issues I could call her any time, and when I was in labour she really helped me focus as best as I could. And for it being a free service to me it was well worth the time.

Yes ! Worth the money... If you're going the whole natural birth I would recommend one. I almost has mine but couldn't afford it last minute she was my birthing teacher. I learned much I made w/out pain meds I was 8cm 2 days in labor did all she taught us it helped a lot I wish I had her while giving birth I think it would of help. I end up having an emergency c- section :/

Dani N asks So I know I shouldn’t be frustrated. But I’m pissed off. Every time my husband feeds my 8 week old, he ends up choking on the milk atleast once each feeding. My LO doesn't do this with anyone else who feeds him. I don't Know if my husband isn’t paying attention. Not sure what's going on. Instead of him attempting to figure out what's Going on, he blames the baby. 😑 #annoyed

Stephanie B asks Is it normal for my 4 1/2 yo to tell me I want to be the prettiest girl at school today? Then she comes home saying she was the prettiest girl in her class. How are we supposed to react? I tell her everyone is pretty in their own way.

Christy H asks If you girls have not read “Girl, wash you're face” check it out. It's a book I think all of us need to read. It really got me thinking about things. I know I am always comparing myself to other moms especially and me not thinking I'm a good enough mom sometimes. It made me realize to stop it and I'm killing it as a mom.
