Re: have you had a doula before? I'm considering it!

Loved my doula and I'm a Bradley believer! Sounds like you've got a great team and a great attitude! IMO, natural labor is more of a mental challenge. Your body knows how to have the baby.

I agree! Getting past fear is a huge part of it I think. Western culture makes labor/birth out to be a grotesque, horribly painful and unnatural experience. In cultures where women trust their body to do the work and go into it without all the fear, not only are labors shorter, but there are better maternal outcomes. We have so much work to do here to help shift perspectives but I think it will happen. Ricki Lake certainly has done her part!!
