Labor Doula Support
“Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen carefully.” ~Littlefoot’s mother, Land Before Time
Because the birth of your baby is a monumental and life changing experience, you’ve done everything you can to plan for it. You’ve chosen the best birth facility, hired the best medical providers, decorated the nursery, read every childbirth and parenting resource you could get your hands on and now…
You’re ready to hire the perfect doula!
You want someone who you feel will understand you. Someone who makes you feel capable and strong. Someone who will help your partner have the experience they desire, whether it is “hands on” or more “hands off.” You want someone current on all things birth, postpartum and baby. Someone with great communication skills and the ability to be a team player in your birth environment. You want a nonjudgmental, unbiased, professional doula.
Once again, your intuition has served you well and you have found Heartland Doulas!
Your doula from Heartland Doulas will spend time with you and your partner prenatally to come to understand how to best comfort and support you during labor and learn about the birth that you envision for yourself. She will discuss options, share her knowledge, and help you write a birth plan if you feel so inclined.
You will have the comfort of a birth expert as your “confidant.” When you are unsure if labor has begun and it’s 2am, you will simply call your Heartland doula and feel reassured.
All Heartland Doulas are well versed in:
- Routine hospital protocol for birthing people
- Comfort measures for labor
- Relaxation techniques
- Optimal positions for labor/birth
- Medications and interventions that may accompany birth
- Early breastfeeding/latch
- Routine hospital protocol for newborns
At Heartland Doulas we have crossed every “t” and dotted every “i” because you deserve that! We guarantee availability, provide continuous care, go on call for you the moment you sign on with us as a client and even follow up with a postpartum visit once you are home and settled in.
We welcome you to take your place in the heart of Heartland Doulas!
Heartland Doulas is proud to offer Postpartum Doula Support as well, providing unbiased, nonjudgmental support for new parents.
