Did anyone have a Doula for labor and delivery? How was your experience with one?

No but I seriously wish we had one for the first few weeks after delivery, a post partum doula.

Yes I did, it's over before you know it and right after you go to the restroom and do #2 lol it's just a little uncomfortable

Good hospital nurses, spouse, mother, friend can help you through birth. The real help is needed after you get home.

Yes. I had a 42hr labor and she was worth it. Plus my husband is an anxious person so it really helped that she was there.

I don't know what Amanda was saying.... But we had a doula and were in love with her. It makes your birthing experience so much less stressful and it's great for post baby healing body to have the extra hands. Interview a few and go with someone who gets you and that meets all your needs. If you don't mesh well it won't be worth it

Sounds like she's taking about an enema? Lol.

We had a doula and she was awesome! Even though we took labor classes together, my husband was a freakin dear in headlights when I went into labor. I didn't have any family or friends capable of supporting a natural birth, so it was the way to go for me!
