As part of my Birth Doula Certification process, I need to attend 3 births and receive positive evaluations from each attending OB/midwife, labor and delivery nurse, and mother. If you (or someone you know) are expecting a baby between now and the end of June, live in the Northeast Georgia area, and might want to explore the idea of having the help of a doula, let me know.
Here’s what I do:
Before Labor – I will meet with you and your partner at least once before labor to become acquainted, to explore and discuss your priorities and concerns, and to plan how we might best work together. I will become familiar with your birth plan, your own best ways of coping with pain and fatigue, your preferences regarding management options and the use of pain medications, and how you and your partner foresee working together.
During Labor – I can provide emotional support, physical comfort, and help to supply information you need to make informed decisions as they arise during labor. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning, and other techniques for comfort. Except for extraordinary circumstances, I will remain with you throughout the entire labor and delivery.
After Birth – I will remain with you for one to two hours after birth, helping to make you comfortable and to prepare your family for quiet time together. During this time, I can also help with initial breastfeeding, if necessary. I am available to answer questions about the birth experience or your baby and would like to get together within a few weeks to review the birth, admire your baby, and get feedback from you about my role.
Here’s what I don’t do:
1. Perform clinical tasks, such as blood pressure, fetal heart check, vaginal exams, etc. I am there to provide only physical comfort and emotional support.
2. Make decisions for you. I will help you get the information necessary to make an informed decision. I will also remind you if there is a departure from your birth plan.
3. Speak to the staff on your behalf. I will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options, but you or your partner will speak directly to the clinical staff.
So, let me know if you you’re interested or if you have any questions. Act now, so you can get in on this amazing introductory rate (FREE)!
