Looking At Having Me As Your Doula ?
I Am So Glad You Are Here and Wise Thinking Too, Especially If You Are Birthing In Hospital?
During Pregnancy your body is already hormonally for birth.
And furthermore, unless there is a medical circumstance, your body will have the capacity to birth your baby and intuition that will help guide you to birth your baby.
Your body and baby know how to birth safely and you have amazing hormones and physiology that assist the process.
And basically you do not have to do anything to have this amazing super power-like ability.
It happens unconsciously.
And when you feel safe, well supported and allowed the time your birthing body will open, in all the ways, to bring your beautiful baby earthside.
Yet, here’s the frustrating thing…
… Sadly today , women are birthing in a system that has rapidly increasing rates of intervention in a birth culture that sees women and birth as fitting in linear time frames, needing to be managed, a lens that views birth as more likely to go wrong than perfectly right and often presented in ways that are not evidenced based OR just according to hospital policy.
When you get ok with the fact that, that IS the system, then you have an opportunity to put some actions and things in place that increase the chances of getting the birth you want.
Having a doula increases the chance that your pregnancy care is individually focussed and centred on your body and baby.
Adding a doula into your birth team is an evidenced based tick in the right direction.
Research (2017) supports having continuous ongoing support, such as a doula as part of your birth team.
The research showed that having this type of ongoing continuity of care:
- increases birth satisfaction
- increases spontaneous onset of labour
- reduces instrumental vaginal birth
- decreases caesarean birth
- decreases use of pain medication
- and has a positive impact on mother baby bonding.
It’s specialised expertise that works alongside your birth partner, to ensure you get the support that makes a difference to getting the birth you want from the birth you don’t.
Having a doula helps you move toward the birth you want and decreases the chances of unnecessary medical intervention.
And I would love you and your partner to feel fully supported throughout your pregnancy and as you birth your baby.
This is the moment you are literally bringing new life into this world and birthing this new evolution of yourself.
So let’s work together to make your birth a highlight and one where you felt fully supported.
