So with both my boys my father was basically my doula!! It wasnt planned that way but thats what happened! Lol!! With ds1 my whole family was in the room(including my grandmother who birthed 3 boys) and my dad just stepped up and coached, my midwife was the one who started calling him my doula. My husband sat at my side with huge eyes barely breathing and my mom did what she does best, panic and piss me off :)!! Lol!
Then with ds2 I thought "i got this, this time!"....wrong halfway through I told dh (who was def more helpful this time around!!) To get my dad, haha.
So who was there during your birth and who helped the most??
