Connect with An Amazing Doula or Educator Today!
What is a childbirth educator?
Absolutely anyone can be a childbirth educator! Your birth educator might be a registered nurse or a former high school English teacher, they might be a stay-at-home-parent working a side hustle, and they might be a midwife. What makes the most out of your birth class is passion and an amazing curriculum.
An independent childbirth educator, one that you hire and not one that is employed by a hospital, is going to be able to provide you with the most unbiased information.
It’s important to take a birth class, because while birth is a physiological natural event, it’s simply not one that we witness or are familiar with any more. Today women are faced with more birthing choices than ever and it’s hard to sort through the endless sea of Dr. Google.
What is a doula?
Doulas act as a guide. A doula is an expert on birth, your partner the expert on you, and together we provide the pinnacle of support, topping off where medical care leaves off.
You learn a lot in birth classes about the birthing process, communication, comfort measures, and more. Your doula applies those to your real life situation. Your doula is like the dog ear in the reference book you created during your birth class. Our support is emotional, physical, and mental.
Doulas don’t just support the birthing person, rather a doula supports both parents.
