Many young parents are without the direct support of close family and friends. These future parents need extra encouragement before, during and after their birthing experiences for a variety of reasons. A doula offers encouraging birth coaching that may be during the birth, prenatal and post natal.
The reasons for requiring a doula may be dependent on past birth experiences, current circumstances, fears , or a lack of confidence for any reason. The overworked medical staff trying to keep up with the hectic pace often don't have the time to offer the support or encouragement needed during the labor and delivery to allow the birthing time to be more productive and less traumatic emotionally and physically. Doula services may also be requested to simply enhance the pregnancy and birth experience by having a friendly, caring, supportive cheerleader to share in your special time
This doula service covers prenatal, birthing and postnatal guidance.
