Thank you so much for this. I am also a doula and have been thinking about what giving birth will be like for years and years. I am always afraid that my training will get in the way! I know that it might not be what I picture but like you said, the important part is that it will be at home and we will have patient caregivers and be respected. Good idea to turn the phones off. Sounds like you couldn't have done the pp period any better! What a good man you have!
