I am a firm believer in taking your health into your own hands because no one has more of a vested interest in your health than YOU. If you're ready to grab your health (and T1D) by the horns then check out my course, Beyond the Insulin!
I had a wonderful experience with a doula. When I was interviewing, I specifically asked doulas about their experience in a hospital setting and with high risk pregnancies/medical interventions and I found a great fit.
I credit my doula for keeping me strong during my induction, 36 hour labor, and epidural-free vaginal delivery. Although it was tough, she kept my spirits up and helped me every step of the way. She also advocated for me with the medical team when my husband was overwhelmed and made me feel supported throughout the journey. Highly recommend!
