You will hear often that doulas go on call the two weeks before and after your due date. Typically they will say the weeks surrounding your EDD ( estimated due date) or between 38-42 weeks pregnant. But what does that mean? What if you go into labor before or after that time period? Will your doula be there? We hope so, of course, but those statements might not bring relaxation and confidence in your team.
