Why you should hire a doula/ Birth Support?


Many birthing families feel neglected, unheard, and sometimes confused leaving their births, having an advocate prior to your birth, to build a plan that will make you feel and be heard, no matter where you choose to birth your baby.


Truth is People of Color experience medical neglect at a higher rate than any other race with these high rates of neglect, we our experiencing high rates of fatal incidents with the birthing parent.


Most assume that because you have a OBGYN or midwife they will have all the time needed for you to ask questions and get fact based information to feel ready, and to have a safe environment while birthing.


The birthing parent receives majority of the support, where as the other parent is left to figure it out or get the bits and pieces that is being told to them. Birth is sacred for both parents and each parent deserves the 1-on-1 time to ask questions and prepare.


Most doulas (Birthworkers) have a team of professionals to assist with many needs and specialties. This network provides many resources within your community. These resources very depending on needs, but very much available and will be offered based off the needs and requests of the birthing families.
