Doula / Labor Support Care

For couples choosing to birth in the hospital, doulas are a very important addition to the birth team. Scientific studies have shown that doulas have provided the following benefits:

Shorter labors

Less need for epidural pain relief

Less need for oxytocin augmentation of labor

Less need for forceps or vacuum extraction

Reduces the need for cesareans

And, Mothers remember their birth experience as being more positive! A very important time in a woman’s life!

Doula care begins with a prenatal appointment to discuss the woman’s birth choices, provide information on preparing a birth plan, and define the doula’s role. Doulas do not provide medical oversight but instead give information, support the woman in her chosen birth choices whether medicated or natural delivery, and provide hands-on care during labor and birth in the form of massage techniques, comfort measures to ease labor discomfort, techniques to facilitate progress, and encouragement for the parents. The doula is completely committed to the parents well-being. We routinely train many wonderful ladies who serve in this way. Contact us for referrals! https://smartpregnancy.net/contactus.html

Postpartum Care

Postpartum care can also be arranged. Licensed midwifery care can provide consultations to assess the health of the mother and baby. Referrals to other postpartum doula care can be provided in addition to the medical assessments provided by the Licensed Midwife.
