Nope..I thought about it, but no, DH is a pretty good support..And my dr seems to be one who wants to do whatever the patient wants and won't force me to do anything I don't want!

No, I feel like my midwife is kind of both a midwife and a doula. I like her a lot, so far.

We have a friend that's a doula that I will be her practice pregnancy. Of course I'll be giving her something for her services, but I really want one this time around.

My first birth experience was when I was 19 and thought that the doctors knew best and I had no input. This one will be different! I will do things my way this time.

Its going to be me and DH. We are delivering at a hospital, but I plan to labor at home for as long as I can. I really want to minimize the number of people involved.

I am having a home birth so I will have 2 midwives in attendance, plus my DH and my Mom so I don't think I will need a doula.

No, Im really digging the midwives at my birth center and I feel like they are super supportive enough already, plus DH will be with me this time and he's just super supportive too and so far we've been talking about how it will be etc etc

We don't plan to hire a birth doula, but we are considering hiring a postpartum doula or a nanny to get us through the holidays after DH has to go back to work because my biggest concern right now is having the time to spend those first 6 weeks getting breast feeding going while still making sure my older two are ok. We haven't made a decision yet. We had originally planed to depend on family support, but they have shown while I was on bed rest that they just can't be counted on for the level of support and help we will need.
