Prior to Pregnancy
In the second and third trimester your doula can help to find the right birth class(es) for you and your partner. In your prenatal visit(s) you will design and practice comfort measures so that you are ready when labor starts. We help you to bond with your baby, know their position and work in tandem with them to align for birth. Your doula will guide you in building a birth plan and communication skills with your providers.
As we are at your side, your doula can watch for important signs in labor, suggest when to leave for your birthplace and how to communicate with your medical team, translate medical jargon, and when to leave for your birthplace.
The doula will be there to provide emotional and mental support. To ask you questions like “what are you thinking about right now?” and answer questions like “what will happen now?” Together, the laboring team can feel heard, supported, and treated as individuals.
The doula will be able to guide you and your partner through the best positions for alignment and descent of baby as well as strategize positions for optimal birthing and comfort. Together with your team, the doula will help with comfort techniques (counter pressure, massage to name a couple) and if pain management is requested your doula can stay in the room with you verbally coaching you through your epidural placement or other techniques like TENS units.
Following the Birth
Nearly three months postpartum and just as connected now as throughout my pregnancy. Ursula and I recently sat down for a Doula Q&A: demystifying the doula and creating a little toolbox for you to reference in making your decision. While welcoming a doula is an intimate decision and often an out-of-pocket expense, having one left Andrew and me feeling invaluably empowered and supported from pregnancy through postpartum. For those looking for a doula, check out Ursula. I clearly couldn’t shout her praises louder!
