The emotional responses a person has throughout labor and birth are ever changing and can feel overwhelming. It actually has been shown to stall labor and prevent the progression of uterine contractions and cervical dilation. Your Mindful Birth Doula is prepared for your “unknowns.” She anticipates the change in emotions and will support you by:

  • Creating a safe space to open the dialogue as these changing emotions appear.

  • Normalizing the phases of emotionality as they present themselves.

  • Honoring each emotion enabling you to process them as you ultimately evolve into your newest version of normal.

  • Honoring your partner in the event that emotions arise for them.

  • Being mindful of you and your partner’s need for intimacy and knowing when we are needed to lean in, as well as knowing when you need a few moments to yourselves.

Having a doula physically present enables more comfort and less difficulty as you progress through labor. What you can expect when you have a Mindful Birth Doula present during your labor and birth includes:

  • Positional recommendations for easing labor and encouraging progress.

  • Specialized counter pressure used to relieve the pain associated with contractions.

  • Comforting massage intended to enhance relaxation and increase comfort.

  • Guided mindfulness practices for pain management and relaxation.

  • A variety of learned and practiced skills all centered in supporting labor in all birth settings.

 

These benefits are limitless and they begin the moment you engage our supportive services. Your Mindful Birth Doula has a multitude of resources and a 10 year collection of knowledge, research and evidence surrounding pregnancy, birth and the early postpartum period. Your Mindful Birth Doula will support you by:

  • Meeting with you prenatally to discuss your options surrounding your birth.

  • The knowledge to recognize what is “normal” and what falls outside of the scope of “normal” in relation to labor and birth

  • Having the ability to share the benefits, risks and alternatives to birth related interventions.

  • Having a vetted list of community based referrals and relationships with other birth related professionals.

  • Providing a variety of options in Childbirth Education courses.

The birth of a baby is one the most humanizing experiences in a person’s life. You’ve carefully selected your medical professionals for their expertise and credibility, and you’ve come to the right place for professional and compassionate doula support
