Yay! I'm so excited. Can't wait to hear back from her.

Anybody else having a doula? Have one lined up?

I thought about it, as I'm a doula and I'd like to give a new doula a chance at a certifying birth. But my labors are so fast that it probably wouldn't meet the time requirement! Personally I wouldn't mind having a wonderfully experienced doula but they cost a lot of money here. I've done perfectly fine for 3 labors without a doula so I'll be ok!

I want a doula. Whether or not I would like to pay for a doula, need one, or can easily get one in my area is a different story. Still going to need to do some research on that one. They seem like they help so much!

I'm meeting with her next week so I'll see how it will work out financially. My biggest worry is paying for one and still ending up with a c-section. I really think I'll NEED one. So, hopefully it will all work out.

I had one with DD. It was great the first time when I was scared and didn't know what to expect. Honestly, my DH helped me more than my doula (he was absolutely amazing ) so I think it will be just us this time. I may have my SIL come to visit and give DH a break if needed.
