Doula Support


 

What is a Doula?
A Doula understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor.  The presence of a Doula at birth has been proven to decrease the need for pain medicine during labor, decrease the occurrences of cesarean delivery, improve the parents’ overall feelings about their birth experience, and so much more.  The support each mother needs will be different therefore the support provided will be unique to you.  While every client’s care is customized some things will not change.  My goal is to access helpful information for you and your partner to assist in the decision making process, emotional and beneficial techniques that include physical comfort measures before, during and after your birth.  Whether you choose a natural or medicated path, my belief is this is YOUR birth and it is my goal to help you achieve the birth you want. By listening to your concerns, I will support you in the course of your entire birth process to achieve your desired birth and to make your birth experience wonderful. I support births in all Hospitals, Birth Centers and Homes in Beaufort, SC; Bluffton, SC; Hilton Head Island, SC; Savannah, GA and surrounding areas. I will work in cooperation with physicians, midwives, nurses, and families to facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and clinical care providers.  I recognize childbirth is a key life experience that the mother will remember forever and as a Doula, I want to help nurture and protect the wonderful memory of her birth experience.
