As your birth doula, I…
…understand the physiology of birth.
…connect with your emotional needs as a birthing woman.
… support your partner as he or she supports you during labor.
…assist you and your partner in preparing for your birth preferences.
…stay with you through labor and delivery, until at least an hour after your baby’s birth
…provide emotional support, physical comfort suggestions, an objective viewpoint, and educational resources to assist you and your partner in making important decisions.
…facilitate communication between you and your partner, as well as mediate communication between the laboring couple and their care provider.
