Hello! We are excited to have the option of having a water birth at JSUMC. I go to Dr. Baum at Jersey Shore OBGYN and cannot afford a midwife, and I do really like him. I will be using a doul in the room, but Im just not sure how the water birth option works when you're using a doula and a doctor vs a midwife. I want it to be as unassisted as possible with just my husband helping and nurses checking on my progress and only HIGHLY necessary interventions.
Anyone with experience in this area, advice/suggestions would be appreciated!
