Be Flexible: Birth “Preferences”
If you are looking for a doula, you have likely already started thinking about your “birth plan.” I would like to encourage expectant moms, dads and partners to think more along the lines of “birth preferences.” Birth is really hard to “plan” for. You don’t know exactly how you will feel in the moment and what your baby may feel like doing! It is incredibly beneficial to know your options ahead of time, think about how you would like things to go, maybe even have a “Plan B,” and then just roll with it.
In our prenatal visits leading up to the birth of your little one, we will go over an array of preferences and create your birth preferences worksheet together.
Some things to consider:
As your doula I will provide evidence-based research to help you create your preferences worksheet in our prenatal visits. These preferences will be shared with your care provider and changed if necessary. Then during your labor and delivery I will help you achieve your preferences and be a sounding board if things need to change.
I am so excited to meet you and am honored to be a part of this process!
