What is a doula?
What's the difference between a doula and a midwife?
Do doulas replace partners in the birthing space?
Can doulas attend home births?
If I am planning and epidural, how can a doula support me?
Doulas can help with people who choose epidurals in many ways! Many people will labor at home for a while prior to going to heading to the hospital – I can provide support and comfort measures during this time. And ones the epidural is administered, I can help you maintain good positioning to ensure labor continues to progress, help with any additional decisions or questions you may have, take pictures, provide emotional encouragement, and help you get settled after the baby is born.
