Birth support from a trained doula is the best investment you can make in you and your babies birth. A quick google search will tell you all the amazing outcomes and benefits to hiring a doula for your pregnancy and birth journey. It’s like hiring your own personal coach for the most incredible emotional and physical feat of your life. Why would you not want a coach for that?! But how exactly will I support your birth you ask? Well…
Over the course of 3 meetings during your pregnancy, I will get a very real sense of who you are and what kind of birth you want. I will listen to you, answer your questions, provide you with information on specific topics that arise, offer suggestions, and recommend things you can do to get closer to your ultimate birth goals.
During your pregnancy and birth, I am an open book. I will share all my accumulative knowledge from many births I’ve attended including my own three births, with the aim being to make your journey a little bit easier, a little bit more comfortable, and a hell of a lot more connected. The benefit of feeling connected during your birth overflows to your bonding experience with your baby and those first few weeks or months as you establish yourself as a new mother or new family dynamic. Feeling in touch to your body, your heart and your baby’s energy can also facilitate successful breastfeeding and being able to read your babies cues clearly.
During your pregnancy and birth I have a bag of goodies which I warmly offer you access. This bag is a trove of options and resources which includes things like Tens, Peanut Ball, Pure Essential Oils, Homeopathic’s, Rebozo, Massage oils and, Books, DVD’s, and Affirmation Cards. I can also help you hire a birth pool if need be.
On your birthing day, I will hold the space for your best birth to unfold. I will come and be with you at home or hospital, or in that elusive dolphin pool should you desire! I will be your personal cheerleader, your number 1 fan, and YES I want the t-shirt! I will rub your back, remind you to drink and pee, and suggest food if I see your energy needs boosting. I will support your partner (should you have one) to do all of these things too, teamwork baby! I will decode any medical lingo and explain anything that you don’t understand along the way. I will offer you options and choices to steer your birth in the direction you want, and I will encourage your intuition to consume you. It’s almost impossible to put into words what a doula provides.
