If I already have a doula, would it be practical for me to take a course on the bradley method? DH doesn't think so. He says, "I thought that's what we had the doula for....we're paying her to tell us what to do. Why do we need to pay someone else to teach us what to do. Wouldn't it be one or the other?"
I just want as natural a birth as possible. I'm giving birth at a naval hospital which will make it even harder being in that environment instead of home. I know all he thinks of are in terms of money, but it seems worth it to me.
What were you all's experiences? Was it worth it to have both? Did you just have one (the class or the doula). Was it enough?
