Hi to all you wonderful OB/GYN nurses!
I am a school RN pg with my first, I'm 21 weeks and I was thinking about hiring a doula to assist with my L & D.
What sort of experiences have you had with labor assistants?
What sort of thoughts run through your head when you see a pt arrive with a doula?
I'm just curious about your opinions seeing as how you deal with laboring women on a daily basis
I mostly want to hire her b/c I know my husband would be a lousy "coach" and I used to work at the hospital that i'm going to deliver in and I know that it's rare that an RN can stay with you t/o the entire labor.
