I did not live here when I had my son. The midwife practice I am currently using and Mercy Hospital are all new to me. I am now beginning to question if I have made the right choice.
I LOOOOVE my midwife. I found her on my best friend's suggestion and our personalities mesh very well. That being said, when I asked her for doula suggestions she admitted that she RARELY works with doulas. I have the choice of using Baystate or Mercy. Out of the two, I would prefer Mercy, but as I search for local doulas I am hardpressed to find many that are familiar with Mercy. Not that they have to be, but now I am wondering why. Is Mercy just so supportive that doulas aren't needed? Or is it just the opposite? Or maybe they tend to serve a different type of mama?
Anyone with any insight would be greatly appreciate?
