    Default Doula in a private hospital

    Just wondering if doulas are allowed to assist with births in a private hospital?
    I'm hoping to attempt a vbac and thought one would be invaluable to me.
    The hospital is sjog Murdoch in Perth.
    Thanks

    Bump! Pretty sure it's fine but I'll double check with a doula friend tomorrow if no one else can tell you.

    I would be really concerned about going to a place that didn't want doulas or private midwives.

    It probably isn't an issue but I haven't come across someone at my hospital thats had a doula so thought i'd ask I'm seeing my OB next Thursday so can ask him directly then.

    Checked with Doula and she regularly attends births at private hospitals.

    I had a doula at a private hospital. My OB tried to talk me out of it because "there would be midwives to take care of" me but I told her that I was having a doula whether she liked it or not. It was the best decision I ever made.

    I had a doula at my private hospital birth and it was great. My midwife, doula and OB worked really well as a team to give me the birth I wanted. I'd do it again in a heartbeat... But I don't want to bring home another baby
