those of you that know me (so to speak) may know on Tues past that I had a baby girl hooray! grin

I had KLAW as my doula (you may have seen her around? she is a doula on the boards here).

I kid you not hubby and I both of whom had individual reservations about a hiring a doula found the experience of having one AMAZING...what a comfort, what support, what a god sent when it came to the event.

SHE WAS A ROCK AND WE COULDNT HAVE GOT AS FAR WITHOUT HER!!! As my labour/birth was not straight forward.....

She brought comfort to our third birth that we had bever experienced in either previous births and we think doulas (in particular THE KLAW as we lovingly call her rock)grin

Hi Krissy!
I didn't realise you were having a doula and not least a famous mumsnetter! Glad everything was a positive experience, only 5 weeks to go today and so not looking forward to was only a year ago and the experience is still fresh in my mind!
Hope you are settling at home with all your pink bits!

Oh feck blush

<<runs away to hide>>

peeps out to say that being with K and her dh was the utmost honour and that I am indebted to them for sharing this experience with me.

K was an absolute trooper. She mobilised almost the entire labour. She was a STAR!!!!!!! I have learned so much and am so humbled.

Also was witness to the most amazing midwifery support and the most fabulous VBAC consultant who needs to be sainted. Not once was her previous 2 sections EVER brought up. They were fab!

And baby is cute as a button! grin just like her mum.....
