Hi all - I've been lurking here for a long time, but never posted. But, I need some reassurance today...

My doula just let me know last night that there is a decent chance she won't make it to my birth (her dd is sick - of course, I feel like an awful person worrying about me when she is facing that, but...). She told me her backup is ready to go. Has anyone ever had the experience of using their doula's backup doula? What was it like? The backup is actually more experienced, I'm just concerned because I don't feel like she knows me and my wishes nearly as well, and I'm not as comfortable with her. Can someone give me reassurance that this will work out all right?

What about calling her up and meeting for a couple of hours. that may help ? As a doula myself I know that I would want the chance to get to know a mom as much as possible in that situation.
Good luck!
