Doulas working with your practitioners

Nurses and doctors have sometimes have felt uncomfortable when a Doula has come to the birth, but for the most part professionals are not, because they benefit from us being there. Nurses don't have to work so hard because they know that there is a professional in the room that can he them out, and doctors know that the woman is with somebody that will make a phone call if the time is right time to phone call. Or will actually help their client with some important information. So usually it is better to clear it with your doctor before you have a nurse, but I always tell my clients don;t ask permission. Ask for their support. So instead of going to your doctor and saying is it ok if I have a Doula. To say I would like a Doula, and I'd love for you support me on it. Because it is your birth. Not theirs.
