Even if you are birthing by a planned cesarean, there are plenty of ways that a doula contributes to a better birth experience.

  • I will meet with you before the big day to help you process your wishes for the birth.
  • I will also be present during preparation and through the surgery. In some hospitals I might be allowed to accompany you during your surgery if you wish. If not, I will wait in the waiting room.
  • After the baby is born, I can be with you immediately after, so your husband/partner can accompany the baby.
  • I will also help you establish initial breastfeeding if desired.
  • I will meet with you for a postpartum visit to help you process the birth, answer questions and admire your new little one.
