Why do I need a doula?

Birth doulas offer so many benefits to mothers and their partners which are not met by traditional medical professionals. Doulas can provide physical support in the form of giving you position ideas and assist you in comfort measures.

Another aspect that birth doulas can address is that of providing emotional support. By helping create a safe space for you and your partner, you will be able to allow your hormones of labor to do their work. Whether you determine to have a medicated or natural birth process, families can benefit from the nurturing care of a doula.

Birth doulas do more than assist the mother, they provide partner support as well. The birth partner’s needs can be just as varied as the mother’s. The support of the birth partner is important so that they can be as involved with the birth process as they would like. In turn, if the birth partner is supported, they are able to better support the mother.

What does a birth doula do for me and my partner?

Birth doulas can help set the tone during your birthing process and foster the intimate birthing moment you are looking for.

Birth doulas also recognize that partners have their own unique experience and journey. They must go through their own rite of passage when their partner is in labor.

Emotions can run high during labor, and doulas can provide the mother and partner with a sense of calm when things divert from your perception of the process.

Doulas can help you focus on what’s truly important when things may get a bit chaotic. They can also give partners a break during a lengthy labor and birthing process.

Doulas can offer guidance when you need to make important decisions.
