Frequently asked questions
What is a Birth and Postpartum Doula?
Doula is a Greek term meaning, Servant. A Doula is a non medical person that supports a birther before, during and after birth by providing informational, physical, emotional support, and advocacy during one of the most vulnerable, but powerful moments in the individual's life.
My Husband/Mom/Sister will be there, Do I still need a Doula?
If you are fearful & doubtful of the birthing process, Yes!!! Doula support is not a replacement of the loved ones that are present in your life. I provide specialized experience and training that supports the progression of labor and management of pain and emotions that can be disruptive along the way.
What can you do for me as my Doula?
Your intentions matter! I provide non judgmental and non biased support that caters to your birthing wishes. I keep you reminded of what's important to you, dismantle fears, and support you in making well informed decisions along the way.
What is Evidence Based Care?
"Evidence-based practice uses systematic reviews of the medical literature to evaluate the best evidence on specific clinical topics. The evidence is then translated into practice by medical practitioners who select treatment options for specific cases based on the best research, patient preferences and individual patient characteristics." Evidence-based practice has been shown to increase patient safety, improve clinical outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and decrease variation in patient outcomes.
