What is a Birth Doula?

Birth doulas support the mother through pregnancy, labor and birth. They also help during the time just after the baby is born. BirthWorks Birth Doulas bring both a human-values approach and evidence-based best practices to enhance birth experiences for mothers and babies. BirthWorks offers the best way to help women build confidence and decrease fear in birth! Through integration of the mind, body and spirit women gain ways to access their primal brain, which already knows how to give birth!

Testimonials

Consider this Situation

  • A new mom-to-be does not know what to expect and has fears about labor and giving birth. She is getting overwhelmed.
  • She also feels alone. Maybe she has no family nearby or her partner is unsure of how to best help. Maybe intuitively she knows her medical providers are not giving her all she needs.
  • She wants support regarding her birth choices, how to make a birth plan, where to birth.
  • Ideally, she would like to know what to expect, be prepared and know someone will be there to advocate for her emotionally and physically.
  • You can become her birth doula and provide reassurance and love, plus emotional support to help her feel calm so she can relax and care for herself during pregnancy, make the most informed choices that are closest to her heart, and give her ways that help with more easeful labor and positive birth outcomes.
  • She will be grateful and remember you the rest of her life.
