Labor support for hospitals, birthing centers and home births.
Although not necessary, parents usually prefer to have the assistance of a Doula during labor to help manage the birth through coaching and hands-on techniques. Studies show that having the extra care of a Doula serves to shorten the labor, alleviate pain through use of pressure techniques and also reduce the risk of cesarean births.
Doula services include the following care:
•Childbirth education class
•Accompanied prenatal visits (optional)
•Assistance with the preparation of a Birth Plan
•Maternal Clinical Nursing support
•Continuous Labor and Delivery Support
•Support of uninterrupted skin to skin
•Initial Breastfeeding Assistance (optional)
•Immediate postpartum support
•Initial Postpartum visit at home
