Okay I know that sounds kind of silly but it seems like birth is such an intimate thing, when I think of that role being filled I think of someone like my mom or my best friend not a random person I met. I asked my mom to come for the birth and be there...but my mom still has young children and I don't know if she'll be able to, in fact I kind of doubt she'll be able to...but I kind of cringe at the thought of having a stranger fill that role. I looked up some doulas in my area and they seem really nice and all....but I don't know...

What do you guys think? I know most everyone is pro doula on here...and I like the idea of one...but I just don't know. I do know that it will increase my chances of having a NCB and that I'll prb need all the help I can get considering I'm in for a hospital birth and most likely an on call OB (since my midwife's son is graduating the three days over my due date. lol.).

Someone help me.
