i called her this morning and told her she's hired! we will meet with her starting september. it will be dh's first tiem meeting her, so i hope he likes her. we don't pay her until after we meet her and really it isn't all due until im 36 weeks. but im hopeing to have it saved and ready to pay her at the first meeting if we both love her. im working hard for it...so i would rather just get it done and paid for.

about the hospital thing...i will update this in the other "bump in the road" post as well for reference...
she said it would be better to go to the other newer hospital that our doc delivers at because she said she has seen it too many times where a woman just walks in and gets horrible mean treatment from an on=call doc that is against VBACs. the mom ends up getting bullied and treated like crap. she said she knows my doc very well, has dealt with him a lot of times and that he has a heart, and that if i come in at 7-8 cm ready to go then he will just probably say ok. i did ask her if i should tell him ahead of time, and she said it's a iffy situation and my choices with my specific doctor would be:

apeal to his heart - he is a softy - and come in with my research in hand and be very strong on my decision, then he mght say somehting along the lines of...don't come in until you are past 5cm or i will give you a cesarean...she said there might end up being an ultimatum like that.


chedule the cesarean, then call in the on that day and just say im not feeling well, we need to reschedule....

either way it's going to happen though, i tell ya that!!

Congrats on hiring your doula! I hope you all click well when you start meeting with her in September.

I'm working toward my certification to be a birth doula myself, and always get excited when I see them mentioned.
