A few questions you may have when considering a birth doula:
What kind of births do you attend?
There is no single kind of birth I attend. I have attended:
vaginal and cesarean
twins and singletons
medicated and unmedicated
hospital and birth center
induced and spontaneous labor
OB and Midwife
Will you labor at home with me?
Yes. I will come to you when you need my support. If it is very early labor, I will ask that you keep me updated and I will arrive as things progress a little farther. If I am there from the begining, I may become too exausted to be of use when you physically need me.
What do we do during a prenatal meeting?
In prenatal meetings, we often go over your fears, concerns, learning how we all might work best as a team, getting to know eachother, birth plans and more!
