Doula Birthing and Support Services

 

Prenatal visits are spent getting to know each other … and more specifically to discuss:

  • The stages of labour
  • The Birth Plan – hopes and expectations, fears and concerns
  • The roles of the partner and other support people
  • Individual coping mechanisms
  • Visualization exercises
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Yoga positions to enhance pregnancy and birth

I believe that a woman’s body, during the experience of birth and delivery of a baby, is like a powerful fine tuned machine. It should be given the right care and attention, surrounded by an environment that facilitates relaxation This is the best fuel for a labouring woman, and without tampering too much with the mechanics by intervening when not necessary, the body will ease into what it was designed to do and perform superbly.
