My mom told me that a Doula was unnecessary -- after all with a both a doctor or midwife and my husband present why would we need one? But having Gina and Mariah's support during labor turned out to be crucial! In fact it worries me think about what our birth could have been like without them there! With their asisstance we were able to handle a fast labor that was 5 weeks early as well as progress smoothly past the unpredictable hurdles during the birthing process. This greatly lowered my anxiety and pain and enabled us to meet our baby in a much more positive and happy place. Thank you both so much for everything!
