Birth is also about how mom feels during the process. These feelings paint how her birth will be remembered for the rest of her life.
With increased stress on medical centers and the sheer unpredictability of birth, it is not guaranteed that medical staff can give longstanding individual care to every client that is in labor with hands on continuous support.
Step One: Take some time to talk and plan with your partner about what is and isn’t important to each of you during labor and birth.
The point is to have a start, and as you learn more, talk with your provider more or change your mind, you can help your partner be on the same page by getting expectations out in the open.
Step Two: Find a care provider that listens to your desires for your birth, and works towards making those hopes possible.
Have the support you need to make your plan work for you.
You deserve to have your unique experience with people who can help you bring to life the goals you have in mind. If doula care is right for you, Chinook City Doulas will be able to help with any part of labor and postpartum support.
