I wasn’t planning on hiring a Doula, I thought my husband & I were well prepared for our birth plan. I developed preeclampsia and had to be induced at Boca Regional Hospital. In a panic and completely unprepared for this hurdle we hadn’t planned for, the Birth House offered to send a Doula over. At 11pm exactly 12 hours from hearing I wasn’t going to have the birth I planned, Samara showed up ready to go. She walked in the hospital room (the last place I wanted to be) ready with essential oils, music and so much more.  She was an amazing help, pushing on my hips when needed, reminding me to relax, placing cold wash clothes on my neck, reminding my husband to eat, keeping the music going. I honestly don’t think I could have achieved a natural birth without Samara.  I could not have imagined not having my doula there, don’t think about hiring a doula, just hire one! Take this advice from a mommy who thought there was no way she ever needed a Doula.
