Doula Services

Pregnancy, Birth, Bereavement, Postpartum

Why a doula?

Since the beginning of time, when a person gave birth, there were ALWAYS many caregivers and support people surrounding the person in labor. They were surrounded by their mothers, sisters and aunts who encouraged and mutually supported them, and commonly, at least one of them was their midwife. The book called The Red Tent by Anita Diamant is what initially inspired me to look into the aspect of being surrounded by people whom you trust and respect and the strength it provides you during one of the most intimate times of your life. There is something incredible about the strength and courage one gathers when having a strong support system surrounding and empowering them.

 

I am a trained and experienced non-medical professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to you, the birthing person before, during, and just after birth; in addition, I provides emotional and physical support to you and your family during the postpartum period. 

It is important to understand that I will not replace your partner/support person, but rather assist them in being a collective support to you. When I am present, it allows your partner to participate at his/her comfort level and as we rally around you, we become your strong support system. I will also be able facilitate communication between you, your partner, and the birthing staff, as well. Remember, I am here for you and your family. My goal is to assist  you in advocating for the exact birth you want, no matter what that looks like.

Evidence, published from the Cochrane Review*, has shown that birthing people who receive continuous support from a doula, experience a:

 

  • 31% decrease in the use of pitocin

  • 28% decrease in the risk of cesarean delivery

  • 12% increase in the likelihood of a spontaneous vaginal birth

  • 9% decrease in the use of any medications for pain relief

  • 14% decrease in the risk of newborns being admitted to a special care nursery

  • 34% decrease in the risk of being dissatisfied with the birth experience
