I have a wonderfully supportive husband of seventeen years and we have 6 beautiful daughters and two adorable little boys. I have been a doula for over 10 years and found it to be my third passion, next to serving the Lord and my husband and kids. I am a stay at home mom and home schooling mom as well as a doula. I am also involved in many of our church and city events. I enjoy spending time with my children, playing games, dating my husband, canoeing and reading. As a family we love to go camping, biking, swimming, and venturing to different museums and zoos.
My last three babies were born in the water and I will say that it was by far the best births I have experienced! I have had support from friends, family and/or a doula for all my births except one (number 5). I know that even after our first four daughters were born, my husband could have used help from another set of hands and some different ideas during the birth of our fifth. We remembered this and made sure we had that extra support for number six, seven and eight. I think a fathers' role in the birth of his child is so important but they also need some of the same love, reassurance and support that the birthing mother needs as well. It's unreasonable to expect the partner -- who is as emotionally involved as the expectant mom -- to provide all the support. That is part of the role of a doula, to provide that for the husband or other family member present with the skills before hand and then during if needed.
