Birth Doula

How a birth doula can help

Choosing to hire a birth doula to assist you through your labor is a big decision. Each doula will have her own way of doing things. I see the responsibilities of a birth doula as being:

  • Recognizing birth as a key life experience that the mother will remember all her life
  • Understanding the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor
  • Assisting the woman and her partner in preparing and carrying out their plans for the birth
  • Staying by the side of the laboring woman throughout her entire labor
  • Providing emotional support and comfort measures through pregnancy and labor
  • Offering an objective viewpoint and assisting the mother in getting the information she needs to make good decisions
  • Facilitating communication between the laboring woman, her birth partner, and clinical care providers
  • Nurturing and protecting the woman’s memory of her birth experience
