Why get a doula?
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Doulas are professionals, educated in childbirth, who provide emotional, physical, and educational support for women who are pregnant, in labor, and in the postpartum period. The doula's purpose is to help women have a safe, memorable, and empowering birthing experience.
Julie's calm and confident presence during my labor and delivery was an incredible blessing. She was my greatest advocate that day and made sure my wishes were heard and my needs were met. My husband agreed that Julie was priceless and he was so grateful she was able to assist with the births of our other two babies!
Doulas offer personalized support during pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period.
Doulas offer many different "tools" to assist during birth, including massage, relaxation, positioning, and birth support.
Doulas can advocate for the mother throughout the birthing experience, empowering her to express her needs and wants during labor.
Mothers who benefited from continuous support are more likely to have spontaneous births with less pain medication or medical intervention required.
