How Can A Doula Enhance Your Birthing Experience
Having a doula present during childbirth can enhance the birthing experience in numerous ways. Doulas provide that much-needed emotional and physical support during these challenging times. They can help you navigate the medical system, offer comfort measures, and advocate for your needs and wishes.
“Just another birth story” by Katie
When Katie went into labor, Erin and Jenny needed help covering a four-hour gap. The opportunity to spend time with Katie and Brian at their birth was too great to pass up for this doula. I was honored to be a part of their special day and impressed with how Katie handled her contractions. The bond between Katie and Brian was evident, and Brian did everything he could to support her. Here is her story.
The Importance Of Respecting Gender Terms During Pregnancy And Birth
Pregnancy and childbirth are critical moments in a person's life. These moments are filled with emotions, challenges, and changes that can impact a person's sense of self and identity.
For individuals who identify as transgender or non-binary, pregnancy and birth can be incredibly complex and challenging given the societal norms and expectations around gender. Respecting gender terms during pregnancy and birth is crucial to ensure individuals feel safe, respected, and supported during this transformative time.
