Birth Doula Services 

How Does a Birth Doula Support Laboring Moms? 

 

Comfort measures and physical support: During our two prenatal visits together we will discuss and learn various comfort measures that will help you during your labor. These comfort measures can be performed by either myself or your partner (sometimes both!) During your labor I will ensure you and your partner stay hydrated and fed (as tolerated). 

Emotional Support:  Throughout your pregnancy, during your labor and during your postpartum recovery I am here to listen to any concerns you may have. I will be here to offer encouragement and support. I have evidence based childbirth information to share anytime you ask. I will help you formulate your a birth plan that matches your exact desires. During your labor I will be there to hold your hand, encourage you regularly and pay attention to what your needs actually are. 

Support for your partner: Your partner is so important to your labor. Your partner is the one that you trust and need the most during this time. My job isn't to take his place but to work alongside him to offer you the support you need. I am here when he needs to eat something, I am here to ensure he is staying hydrated and I am here if he needs to take a break. Labor can be a marathon and the human body doesn't stop having needs just for labor! 

Support for you: While my job is NOT to make decisions for you in labor I am there to walk you through whatever may come up during your labor. If at anytime you would like more informations on an intervention I am able to provide that to you. However you need to be supported before, during and after your labor I am here for you. 

Information and resources: I have a wealth of information and resources available to you. Looking for a chiropractor, prenatal yoga, birth classes, ect. I have a list for you. Are you looking to learn more about your birth options? I have resources! Are you worried about breastfeeding? I have a list of CLC's and IBCLC's for you! The list goes on!

Doula Care is something 

I'm Passionate about 

Every women deserves a birth that doesn't end in trauma. Every women deserves to birth the way she wants, in the safest way possible for her. 

Every women deserves to be fully informed in the labor and delivery room. 

Every women deserves to birth in Confidence. 

This is what I believe in.

 

 

If my words cause a stir in your heart, if you too believe in the in the power and sanctity of your own birthing process, let's meet! Let me buy you a coffee and we can get to know each other.
