Gift Certificates for birth and postpartum doula services, and any of my classes are an excellent gift for any expectant family!

A gift certificate is perfect for:

– baby shower or welcoming baby home gift from a group of friends
– when planned help has not yet arrived
– when a new mom needs brief “crisis intervention” support to help her through a challenging time
– massage

Gift certificates can be purchased before or after the birth of a new baby by an individual or a group of family members, friends or work colleagues. The gift certificate can be used for a full package, toward a package or added onto an existing package.

I am happy to help.

Doula and Partner

The birth of your baby is a very private event. You might be wondering if a doula will replace or exclude your partner or intrude.

The role of the doula is never to take the place of husbands or partners in labor but rather to compliment and enhance their experience.

Why hire a doula?

This is one of the questions I have been asked most often. Many people wonder what the benefit of having a person doing exactly what their partner and midwife would do.

There are many reasons why a doula is different from the partner and a midwife.

However, it is not mentioned in it, that research has shown the effectiveness of a doula in reducing the medicalization of delivery so much so that WHO recently affirmed that doula is a precious presence during childbirth and that every woman should have on her side.

“Continuous support during labour has clinically meaningful benefits for women and infants and no known harm. All women should have support throughout labour and birth.”

What is a Doula?

birth-doula-quote-image-for-main-page2

A doula supports a woman and her partner during pregnancy, birth, and the early weeks of parenting, with reassurance, practical assistance, and information.
A doula is someone you come to know well by the time of your birth, and who is there during your labor, by your side, focused solely on you and your partner. She can encourage you, remain objective, and help your partner feel more confident about how to support you. She can also assist you with practical knowledge on comfort measures for labor, such as massage and suggestions for positioning. A doula can provide information when you have questions, and can help you communicate most effectively with your medical caregivers.

The main focus of a doula’s role is often on the birth itself, but doula support can also be invaluable during pregnancy (especially if you face questions about tests or complications), and after the birth when she can help out with feeding and adjusting to life with a newborn.

There are a few things a doula is not.

She is not acting as a nurse or midwife, so she does not provide clinical care such as doing examinations on you or checking your baby’s heartbeat. The support a doula provides fits together with, but does not replace, the care of your doctor, midwife, or nurses.

Doulas do not make decisions for you, or speak for you. This is your birth, your baby, your life!

A doula supports you by providing information and explanations you may want about your choices, but it’s always you who decides what’s best for you.
