I've been wondering about a Doula lately - at first I thought, yes! I want to have a doula there to help us with Baby B's delivery & aftermath...and then I sort of decided that it wasn't affordable, & we did it once, we can do it again, etc...
But now I'm thinking about it again.
I still don't know if we can afford it - I know that the Birthing Ways group here in Duluth operates on a sliding scale, so that's reassuring. Part of me is wondering is it too late in the process? Will I get to know a Doula in time to feel comfortable with having her in the delivery room? Then again - what if Steve is off in the boondocks again & I am laboring alone? Wouldn't it be nice to have someone there helping me? I would really like to deliver this baby drug-free again but I'm nervous that I won't be able to do it, I know that Doulas are incredibly helpful at getting you through the tough parts.
So I flip flop.
Any of you ladies or gents out there want to weigh in?
