Hello all. I'm in my second pregnany and so far all looks good (17 weeks) and am hoping for an uneventful rest of the pregnancy. I'm wondering if anyone used a doula or midwife for subsequent deliveries. I'm currently seeing the high risk doctors and will see them throughout my pregnancy and I'm fully aware that I may not go full term and may require all that the high risk folks provide, but I think I would feel let down if I didn't look into the possibility of a low-key calm delivery. There must have been 35 people there for my girls and with me on mag sulfate and I'm not sure what else, I'm a little fuzzy on the whole delivery. So my question is does anyone know where to look for a doula or midwife who would be able and willing to provide help if all is going well and not feel out of place delivering at a high risk hospital? I'm in the Hamilton, ON area.
