Hey there pretty mama!
So here you are exploring all things pregnancy, Birthing and beyond into the 4th trimester. As I'm sure you're now aware education & planning play a substantial role in this spectacular rollercoaster you are riding with your partner over the next few months.
these choices can be extensive & may or may not be easy to make -
> Do I choose Public or Private?
> What's a better choice, Midwife or Obstetrician?
> Do I birth at home or in hospital?
> Who do I want with me at the birth?
The list of questions running around in your head can be endless I'm sure and it's highly likely everyone around you will have an opinion on what your eating, how large or small your bump is, what sex the baby is, when you're due.
But has anyone actually asked you about what you need?
You see a Doula works for you!
Her priority lies only with the needs and wants of the birthing woman. Holding the space for you is the only thing that matters, doulas come without judgement or opinions (we leave these at the door) You won't need to worry about shift changes or endless paperwork taking your doula from you because your doula is not your care provider/ medical professional nor does she work for the hospital.
Providing Professional Birth Support is the role of a doula She will be the calmest most rational person in the room, your confidant, the reassurance for both yourself & partner.
To your doula you are that rockstar & she will never leave you until you are ready for her to do so because this is your birth, your right of passage, your super special moments!
So What Is A Doula?
