Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life. Ina May Gaskin
Having a baby is an amazing experience.
Hiring a doula to provide continuous one on one support for you and your partner (if you have one), can help you achieve your desired birthing experience, whatever that may personally be for you. This can be through prenatal care, information and support, labour and birth support , and postnatal care.
A doula will support your choices, respect you and hold the space for you, will listen to you and understand your emotions.
A doula can support you in any birth environment you choose. A doula can support a vaginal birth or a birth by ceaserean. As a doula, I believe in you. I respect your decisions, validate and acknowledge your feelings, and I trust in you and your ability to birth your baby. I support you with the way you feel comfortable and without fear, in a safe and supportive environment.
By hiring a doula a mother ensures: She has continous 1:1 support physically, emotionally, spiritually Her choices are respected and supported She is surrounded by caring and nurturing energy at all times She has a reduced risk of unnecessary interventions She has a skilled set of hands 'holding the space for her'
