  • Yes. I had a doula in training for my second birth. Since she was in training, I got her for free! I was her first birth and it was a great experience.

  • Yes, I plan to use one at my next birth. I wish I'd had one for my first. (My hubby was very supportive and wonderful, but a doula is different.)

  • Yes, I had one there for my first baby. Wasn't a great experience, didn't hire one for my subsequent deliveries.

  • I hear that they are just a professional birthing coach. They are not to be in front of your partner for the birthing, but there if you need them.
