Birth and Postpartum Support
Support. Advocacy. Collaboration. Community.
Doulas have been proven to make the birth experience more pleasant for both mom and her partner. Much more than an assistant in the birthing process, the doula educates the family on the processes of conception to postpartum, serves at the calming source, advocates and promotes a safe and empowering birthing experience.
what is a doula?
how does a doula serve me?
In the early stages of the pregnancy, the doula and mom-to-be establishes a relationship. Serving as an educator, the doula will educate both the mom and partner on the processes, address concerns, attend prenatal appointments and support the family to establish a birth plan that aligns with the needs and choices of mom.
During birth, the doula will support mom to implement the birthing plan. While your medical doctors' primary concern is the delivery of the baby, we help the birthing couple get the information they need to feel confident in their choices and all the while preserve the precious space—literally and figuratively—around the mom-to-be that allows her to do the work of birth.
In the postpartum period, the doula provides emotional support, helps with soothing techniques, offers breastfeeding or bottle feeding support, and explains normal newborn behavior and more.
