Birth Doula

Even after taking prenatal classes, reading the birthing books and doing the hospital tour you may not feel fully prepared for birth. How can you be when you’ve never experienced it before?

Your birth doula is like your external hard drive, with hands, who reminds you of all of the coping practices you’ve learned, suggests labour support to partner(s) or support people that is most appropriate for your current stage of labour and remembers all of those little details about when to call your midwife/ go to the hospital/try the hip squeeze/ask for more time that you really, really wanted to remember.

Your birth doula allows you to fully bring your mind to your birthing experience. Your birthing support can fully bring their mind to you. You are calmer, more resourceful and feel confident in the way your birth is unfolding because you have someone you trust with you from the very beginning of your labour, to the very end.
