I had a baby August 8th. It was a planned home birth. My doula was visiting family 2 hours away, so I called her and gave her a heads up. I said "I'm pretty sure I'm in labor, so if you want to, you can start heading back and I"ll call you when I'm sure it's serious."
Two hours later she shows up at my house, without me calling her again. I was coming out of my bedroom to call the midwife to have her come over to see if it really was labor. There she was and she had brought her whole family. Here I am, having contractions in my living room and her husband comes in and is all "Hey! How are ya?!" Uncomfortable much!
As a doula, I would never DREAM of doing that. I would wait for the second call and I would definately not bring my husband and kids with me. She asked if they could stay, but I am not a no-person, I said yes even though I wanted them out :( I would never do that to a client!
Messed up or no?
