What is a doula?

 

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.

Why hire a Birth Doula? 

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

  • Not to mention, unlimited support throughout the duration of your pregnancy and throughout your postpartum period.
