Who is Your Doula and what do You get from Her?
A Doula is a trained in childbirth and experienced professional
who provides continuous
physical, emotional and informational support
to the mother
before, during and just after birth.
The word Doula comes from the ancient Greek meaning
“woman who serves“
and we also refer to it as
“mothering the mother“.
When Your Doula is with You, You receive and enjoy:
acceptance of who You are and the decisions that You make without judging (She leaves her personal values out of her role, without pressure You into making any choice because that is what She prefers);
emotional and physical support;
information about birth options, breastfeeding, labour positioning, stages of birth, services available in Your community, etc …
comfort measures during childbirth: breathing, relaxation, movement, positioning;
reinforcement of Your partner‘s role;
enhancement of Your own advocacy;
Her continuous loving and caring presence (without change of shift).
Please consider that some duties are out of the Doula’s role, such as:
act as medical professional;
perform clinical tasks (ex. vaginal exams, fetal heart monitoring);
give medical advice or diagnose conditions;
deliver the baby.
In case of necessity on these topics, You must contact the professionals
You trust and are involved in Your pregnancy/childbirth.
Studies have shown that when Your Doula attends Your birth:
Your labor is shorter with fewer complications;
Your baby is healthier and You breastfeed more easily;
You are less likely to experience an induced labor;
You are less likely to experience a Cesarean Section;
You are more likely to experience a Vaginal Birth;
You are less likely to use medications for pain relief;
You are less likely to have Your newborn admitted to a special care nursery;
You are more satisfasfied with Your Childbirth.
… and Research evidence shows that
from the quality services of a postpartum Doula You can:
ease the transition that comes with the addition of Your baby to Your family;
improve Your parental satisfaction;
reduce the risk of mood disorders.
