This is totally new to me!  My friend posted this article on FB and I've honestly never heard of it before!  Have any of you ever considered hiring a doula for a scheduled c-section???

Hi Jennifer!  Thanks for asking!  I'm doing pretty good.  I have about two weeks left until delivery so as you know, life is getting quite... uncomfortable!  Looking forward to meeting this little one!

If I didn't have a good support system, I would certainly consider it.  I've never known anyone who actually has used a doula for either type of delivery though.

BTW, Jan, how are you doing?  It looks like your new baby should be here soon!  Hoping you have a very easy delivery and recovery!!  GOOD LUCK!!!
