  • The way I planned my birth went nothing like it. Make sure you know what you want and don't give in.

  • I had one, then things went downhill and I threw it out the window and did what I felt was "right" at the moment.

  • Yes, I used them.   I was planning out of hospital births so not as important.   But really helpful to learn about birth options!  :-)

  • I didn't have one with my last birth but my mom acted as my doula and I trusted her decisions and she knew everything I wanted because we had been discussing these things for months. I'll be writing one out this time to give to my husband to read since we aren't sure my mother will be able to make it and I want him to make sure that they don't do anything that we don't want to have done like breaking my water too early (before 4 or 5 cm) or giving me an episiotomy.
