with Doulas North East
A Doula works with a pregnant woman and her partner to help them to achieve a positive birth. Doulas do not judge or advise and will support a woman's choices whatever they may be - waterbirth, epidural, C-section, homebirth, induction.
A Doula's focus is entirely on the pregnant woman as she helps her to prepare antenatally and then provides reassurance and protects her space during the labour. Doulas also support partners during this time. Postnatal support can help parents to navigate the overwhelming emotions and exhaustion that greet parenthood.
Some Doulas have experience or skills in addition to being a doula, such as massage, placenta encapsulation, mizan therapy, closing the bones ceremonies, breastfeeding peer support. Some Doulas can provide antenatal education or lend you books and information to help you to make informed choices. To find out more about doulas you can visit Doula Uk
