Topic: Forming Your Birth Team
is the difference between a Midwife and a Doula? A Doctor and a
Midwife? A Nurse and a Doula? A home and a hospital birth? What will
insurance pay for?
How do I figure out if my doctor shares my approach to birth? How much does that matter? Do I need to meet
with my Doctor/Midwife/Doula's back up? What are some questions that I
should ask my doctor? What kind of answer should I look for?
What should I look for on the hospital tour? What are the pros and cons of different hospitals?
What should I look for in a birth doula? How much does experience
matter? How much does a doula cost? Where can I find doula resources?
How does a doula work with the partner?
What is a post-partum
doula? Does she take the place of my mom? How does she work with a
family? What kind of hours does a PP doula usually work?
