Emotional, Physical, and Informational support for families during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
My job as a doula is not to have the birth I want, but to help the mother have the birth she wants. I offer them continuous physical as well as emotional support and help with pain management techniques. I am available to explain the pros and cons of procedures to the best of my ability and reassure them that labor is progressing normally. Sometimes I am just there to offer a hand for holding or massage. Most importantly I am there to be present, attentive, encouraging and supportive.
