As I explained in this post, I am hoping to succeed in having a VBAC when its time for this baby to make his way into the world. There were a number of things I had on my list of things to do to prepare myself but honestly I felt none were as important as hiring a doula.
I knew I wanted one from the moment my doctor gave me the OK for a VBAC. So I scheduled an appointment with the clinic’s antenatal coordinator/doula who is none other than the lovely Claire Anne Mavris. We sat down for a chat or as I like to call it ‘a grilling session’. I wanted to know everything about her work at the ISIS Clinic but most importantly I wanted to know what she could do for me when the time comes.
