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?
Yes!!! My Doula support is not setup to replace the support of the loved ones in your life. Instead, it's a collaboration and team effort. I am trained to provide specialized support and as such enhance the experience of all by bringing respective training, experience and supportive measures!
What can you do for me as my Doula?
Your say so matters! I provide non judgmental and non biased support that caters to your birthing wishes. I am here to keep you reminded of what's important to you 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.
