No doula here, but if it was in our budget I think I would really enjoy having one. I was thinking it would be nice to have someone in the delivery room to coach me during labor. My first labor was intense and a very painful pain med free birth. The pushing part wasn't bad, but the transitional labor contractions were EVIL! I was induced. I don't remember what they used to induce me but I was told it was stronger than pitocin. I honestly think the contractions wouldn't have hurt "as bad" if I hadn't been induced. The nurse that came in and out of my room would tell me how to breath because she was worried I was going to black out from my crazy breathing. I think it would be nice to have someone in there helping me keep my breathing under control. As of right now we can't really afford it.
