What is a doula?
As your doula, we provide you and your partner with informational, emotional, and physical support during your pregnancy and childbirth. There are many outlooks or ideals on what a doula’s childbirth philosophy is. Our feeling is that this is YOUR birth. It’s our goal to help you achieve the birth you want by listening to your concerns and catering care and support to what will best help you achieve it.
Why should you consider hiring a birth doula?
The presence of a doula at birth has been proven to decrease the need for pain medicine during labor, decreases the occurrences of cesarean delivery, improve the parents’ overall feelings about their birth experience, and so much more. The support each mother needs will be different so the support provided is always unique to you.
We know that how women experience their birth has such a rippling impact on our world and if we can help improve our world by serving women during birth, we’re all in! While every client’s care is customized some things will not change.
Every doula client receives:
This meeting allows us to get to know each other and discover exactly how we can best support you. Every mother is different so her needs during birth and the care provided will be different for each mother as well. We will also thoroughly review the available support options and the agreement so that we can answer any questions you may have.
We go “on-call” 2 weeks prior to your estimated due date and we’ll be available to be with you as active labor begins. We only accept 1-2 doula clients per month, to ensure specialty care and practically eliminate the chances of us missing your birth.
Continuous Labor And Birth Support
Your trained doula is with you, supporting you and your birth partner, throughout the birthing process. We labor with you at the birth space you choose as active labor begins offering a variety information, pain management and emotional support tools. We are also with you for a while after your little one arrives and can assist with initial breastfeeding support, if desired.
