Many families who wish to labor naturally, and without drugs, do hire a birth doula. A birth doula offers prenatal education on comfort measures and breathing techniques for pain relief, and hands-on support during contractions, so it's no wonder women desire their support! A birth doula not only supports the laboring woman, but also their partner. As birth doulas, we have shown partners how to do foot massage during labor, and the couple how to use a rebozo and birth ball for pain relief.
But - birth doulas are not just for drug-free vaginal births. Many women who know they will require a c-section, or opt for one for personal reasons, choose to hire doulas, too. We work with our clients to plan family centered cesareans, hire birth photographers, and postpartum doulas. One of the most fulfilling rewards of being a birth doula is seeing a family feeling totally empowered at this new knowledge they have gained.
Birth doulas support the whole family, no matter what type of birth they desire, or ultimately have.
