I have some spinal and orthopedic problems, and the docs tell me that most likely I will undergo a C-section. My due date is mid March. My husband and I are presently residing in an European country, and we have no other family here. I am wondering if it would be useful to hire a doula even if I have a C-section? What sort of help she might provide?
