You need professional support from a birth/labor doula.
Hiring a certified doula to assist you in reaching your goals is paramount. With a doula's help, you can relax and focus on your labor and delivery by allowing her to support your wishes for childbirth. Your doula can advocate for you, making sure your birth preferences are followed by hospital staff, and help to prevent unnecessary interventions. Even if you trust your maternity care provider, they may not be the person to assist at your delivery and you might need help avoiding an episotomy, artificial rupture of your membranes, cord traction, augmentation, and so on.
