3 Pillars of Birth Doula Support Information Avoid Google - Ask Your Doula! I can help keep you and your partner informed through each milestone of your pregnancy and postpartum journey. I can also help you find evidence based information about different options in pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. A Doula is an unbiased resource. NEVER a source. Emotional Support Your Emotions and Fears Deserve Attention! A Doula is a continuous comforting presence offering reassurance and encouragement, showing a caring and empathetic attitude and helping you and your partner work through fears and self doubt about pregnancy and birth. Debriefing after birth is another way a Doula can support you emotionally. Physical Support Massage/counter pressure Position changes and suggestions for optimal labour progression Create a calming environment Water therapy (bath, shower) Hydrating and feeding birther Hands on infant feeding support Facilitating The Birth of Your Dreams! Anything you need to feel physically comfortable during your birth, a Doula can assist you with. Birth Doulas and Partners As your Doula, it is NOT my job to replace your partner (unless you are without one). My Job is to educate, emotionally and physically support partners to empower them to support mothers through the birthing process.
