Providing support for a positive birth experience.
I believe that every woman’s birth experience is an event that is stamped within her heart and mind for as long as she lives. This birth “stamp” can be primarily positive or negative. It is my desire as a doula to assist the expectant couple in achieving a positive “stamp” for their child birth experience. ~ Sherri Peeler
What a Doula Does:
~ A doula understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs a woman in labor may have.
~ A doula assists the woman in preparing for and carrying out her plans for labor delivery.
~ A doula stays with the woman throughout her labor and delivery.
~ A doula provides emotional support, physical comfort measures and an objective viewpoint.
What a Doula Does NOT Do:
~ A doula does not perform clinical tasks such as blood pressure checks, fetal heart rate checks, vaginal exams , etc… I am there to provide physical comfort and emotional support only!
~ A doula does not make decisions for you. I will help you get the information necessary to make an informed decision. I will also be there to remind you if there is a departure from your Birth Plan.
~ A doula does not speak to staff on your behalf regarding your health care decisions being made. I will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options, but you or your partner will speak directly with your health care providers.
