Doulas – The Ultimate Birth Companion!

If you are a newly pregnant Mom, you might be asking what exactly is a Doula and what do they do? Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 7.06.35 PM Labor Doulas like mine, Vivian Keeler at Amazing Births and Beyond are so helpful during the labor process.  So much less stress for Mom!

Here’s some of the things that a typical doula does for a Mom in Labor…

  • Provide a wide range of caring, non-clinical and highly beneficial techniques that include physical comfort measures and emotional support before, during and after the birth.
  • Understand the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor.
  • Access helpful information for the expectant, laboring and postpartum parent/s to assist in their decision making.
  • Work in cooperation with physicians, midwives, nurses, and the partners and families of laboring and postpartum women.
  • Facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and clinical care providers.
  • Recognize that childbirth is a key life experience that the mother will remember all her life. Thus, doulas help nurture and protect the woman’s memory of her birth experience.Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 7.10.05 PM
