Great if you can afford a Doula. Your birth skills are still essential.
Every birth worker should encourage clients to self-learn birth skills. Just explain birth is an activity each woman does. Give every client hand-out of skills-based methods. Include Birthing Better.
You will do the activity of birthing your baby. You need skills to do that. Your partner and doula should share these skills so they can help you use them
No birth worker should take the place of you being skilled to birth your baby. You’re doing pregnancy. You’ll do birth. You’ll do parenting. Your skills matter. Teach your doula.
