-Because you want someone who cares about and knows you, but also can be objective in helping you make decisions.
-Because it’s a wonderful feeling to have someone who is there just for you and your comfort.
-Because there is always something a doula can be doing to help, even if it’s just “holding the space” in the room.
-Because medical terminology can be scary and overwhelming.
-Because your birth should be as much your way as possible.
-Because nurses, even awesome nurses, can’t stay with you through your labor, even if it goes past a certain time.
-Because things change quickly during birth and you need someone who knows what to do and can think on her feet.
-Because if your partner forgets to eat, he/she will get hangry and unhelpful.
-Because birth is a journey and one you shouldn’t take alone.
Why get a doula? Because you are worth it. Doulas help create healthier, happier births and you and your baby deserve that.
