Unique Approach

What makes her Unique?

As a doula, DeAnna may be the only person at the labor besides your partner, who is there solely for the woman’s emotional well-being. The nurse, the doctor, and the midwife have other priorities that compete with the emotional care of the woman; for example, breaks, shift changes, clinical responsibilities, office hours, and hospital policies. As a doula, she has few or no other priorities. She remains through shift changes until after the baby is born. She is not just another stranger with the couple. DeAnna has the birthing partner’s needs as her sole priority.

What is a Doula..

A Different Approach

Modern hospital maternity care practices have reduced the availability of an attending nurse to remain with a mother during labor. A result of this has been the loss of having someone at the bedside to offer continuous support throughout the birthing process. Because many women during labor are comforted and encouraged by having someone with them throughout labor and birth, support persons known as doulas have become increasingly present. Doulas are trained to provide physical, emotional, and informational support to women during labor, birth, and in the immediate postpartum period. With the support of doulas, many women are able to forego epidurals, avoid cesarean births, and have less stressful births.(Papagni & Buckner, 2006) (Vonderheid, Kishi, Norr, & Klima, 2011)

The Greek word doula means woman caregiver. We now use the word to describe a trained and experienced labor companion who provides the woman and her husband or partner continuous emotional support, physical comfort and assistance in obtaining information before, during and just after childbirth.
