Thanks, Gunter!
Erin was my doula for my first home birth, but wasn't there this time. MW & her assistant were both doulas and I felt I had plenty of support between them and my DP.
Lisa was there, though. We are moving to Maine at the end of this month - we would have moved sooner if we hadn't been planning on a third child. I couldn't imagine a birth with anyone else.
