Why every woman should hire a Doula
The advantages of having a Doula present during the birth of your baby are enormous. Apart from the benefits described in the picture above, there are more…..much more.
A Doula stays with you, the whole time. From the first start of labor till your baby is born. One caregiver that doesn’t leave your side. She doesn’t change shift with colleagues. At max she rests a while when your partner is there for support. She is there for you and your family during one of the most intense moments of your life. Apart from the fact that a Doula never judges your choices. She’s there to help, inform and empower you, your choices and your birth. She will help you laboring at home, help you with the transfer to the hospital and stay by your side until your baby is born… AT ALL TIMES.
Someone to tell you that everything will be fine, that you’re not a bad mom if you’d like 2 minutes for yourself or when you need a break.
After the birth she helps you with breastfeeding, adjusting into your new role as parents, looking after your baby when you need that long hot shower, without having to think or listen in if your baby is crying or not. Helping you to notice the different cries in order to understand what your baby is communicating. How to wear your baby and the list goes on and on. It’s the kind of support that I wish every mom could have because it makes the first few months so much easier. Just knowing that there’s someone that understands what you are going through and stands by your side, makes all the difference in the world.
