I am having a doula this time. I haven't before, but dh and I had discussed it before we knew he was going to be deploying and decided we would. This way I have an extra support person during labor. That way if I am having a long labor and my dh needs a rest or a break for a few minutes, I will still have constant support. Plus in the event of a transfer she will be right there to help ease the transition to the hospital (the closest hospital to me is the ONLY one in the area my midwife cannot deliver at because they don't allow midwives to deliver there ) since my midwife can go with me but once my care is transferred then she cannot be with me any more.
