When my husband and I thought about having a doula for our second birth, my husband had concerns he might not be needed. Our doula addressed his concerns ahead of time and during labor and birth, showed my husband many ways to support me which he would not have known how to do on his own. He appreciated having our doula there as much as I did. The knowledge of birth and the sense of calm confidence she brought to our birth helped us feel relaxed and cared for.
A doula is like having a tour guide for your birth journey.
