Doula

Post by bam920 on Fri Feb 29, 2008 6:19 pm

I am nearly 31 weeks and have decided that I might want a doula to attend our labor/birth. Does anyone have any experience with a local doula that they would like to share with me? Names/ numbers would be great.

Private message me if you want.

I am going to deliver at St Johns and if it matters we are having a VBAC this time around.
Thanks in advanced!

I had my first without a doula and my second with a doula and I will never have another baby without one. We used Janet Tolley at St. Johns. She and Cindy actually attneded the birth. It was the best money I have ever spent. I think that you can find them on the st. john's web site.

This time around, I'm using a new doula (I will be her second birth) and having Janet be her "helper".

I cannot imagine having a hospital birth without a doula now that I have had one. I couldn't have had a natural birth without them, that is for sure. I can't say enough good stuff about them. PM me if you have any questions.

Thanks for all your help and support through PM"s etc. Just want to update you all........now that the baby is almost 5 months old! How time flies!

I didn't end up having a VBAC. I went until 41 weeks and was making NO progress (no dilation etc). We ended up doing the repeat c/s. I was disappointed but it was as good experience as can be expected.

My doula was still allowed to be w/ us in the OR and I thought that might be weird, but it was nice to see a familiar pair of eyes (besides just the hubby).

Anyway I recommend a doula and Janet and the rest at ST Johns were great.

Have a great day and birth (if that is why you are reading this!)
