I would LOVE for my Mom to come down again like she did with DD but she has to work too, she wasn't working before, and there was a little bit of a "problem" with DH and my mom getting along after DD was born so I don't think she wants to do it again now that everything is better.

Eppppppp. Im assuming there isnt a SIL or BIL or anything what about some close friends? neighbor you guys are comfortable with?

Re: Too late to get a Doula??

It is NEVER too late for a doula! The volunteer doula program I am with we basically talk to mothers as they come in to L&D to have their babies! I would check around,, or to see if there are any available.

Oh since I see you are in Canada here is another one I found.

Good luck hun!! I hope you find one! You will not regret it!
