Should you consider employing a doula for the birth of your baby?

 

Doulas know that birth is a normal experience of life and that most women deliver vaginally. Obstetricians are likely to recommend induction and /or cesarean section. Unfortunately this undermines the philosophy of natural childbirth.  A doula encourages the idea that a woman's body is able to give birth naturally without interventions. A doula is familiar with complimentary therapies that she can use to ease painful contractions e.g. Massage, visualization, reflexology and previous birth experiences.  

Experience and knowledge of the creature comforts that the individual woman finds calming. I act as a continued knowledgeable presence during the hours of labor and delivery. I will also provide emotional and practical support to the woman and her Partner/family.

Many dads may feel afraid and quite unprepared for the type of support their laboring partner may need. The doula knows what is going on and can explain and reassure and take the pressure off him. He can get involved without the worry of having to recognize signs of difficulty. After the delivery the doula will ensure the woman is washed; comfortable and assisted in the initiation of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding can be neglected on a busy labor & delivery-nursing unit, another benifit for employing a doula.
