What is a Doula?
A Doula is another term for a “birth coach” that was a greek term that meant “womens servant”. It has been proven that having another woman there for support and information has provided a positive impact on the labour and birth experience.
What Does a Doula Do?
I am a woman who is hired by the expectant parents to assist in the pregnancy,birth and postpartum period making your journey into parenthood at ease. I’m here to give you support, information for you to use to help choose what’s best for your birth, and i am here to help the mother stay comfortable through the labour stages while keeping the partner at ease to help as much as they are comfortable as well. I am here to give you the care and support that you deserve!
How can I benefit from a Doula?
Several documents and studies have shown that having a Doula present at a Birth and in the early postpartum days was a great benefit to the new parents. Aside from woman reporting of a much more positive birth experience, it is also shown that the number of cesarean sections cut in half with Doulas present! Women are less likely to choose medial pain relief options and are more calm and in control of their birth with their Doula present. Some women are already set on wanting some sort of pain relief before hiring a doula but want more so the support, comfort and knowledge and majority of Doulas are also supportive of those decisions as well<3.
