Midwives and Doulas, The Support All Mothers Need!

The Valuable Midwife or Doula!

The Valuable Midwife or Doula!

There is no greater time of stress and fear than when it comes to childbirth. Sure, having a new baby can be and is an exciting time but it is also a time of great concern for the health of the mother and the baby. Without the right knowledge and support, I know I wouldn’t have felt so empowered during my labor. Aside from having a very supportive partner, I was blessed to have midwives who took extra care and gave me a lot of support during my labor. After my personal experience, there are many reasons I suggest hiringĀ  a Doula and Midwife.

The Benefits of Having a Midwife:

  • Lengthy appointments with your midwife so they really get to know you and your family
  • Gain a lot of knowledge regarding your options for birth plans
  • Empowered to create a birthing plan
  • Ample time to ask questions or discuss concerns
  • Encouraged to have your child naturally and as nature intended, without devices hook to you or numerous hospital staff coming in and out

The Benefits of Having a Doula:

  • Affordable- the hours of attention you receive before and after the baby comes is at a very affordable price of under $1000
  • Convenience – Doulas come to your home for visits
  • Constant presence throughout your pregnancy and from the beginning of your labor until 1-2 hours after birth
  • Break the Fear-Tension-Pain Cycle through constant education and support
  • More positive birth experience for mother and father

After listing the benefits of both Midwives and Doulas, I remember how great it really was to have received the perfect support after hiring Midwives. I hope all moms and dads to-be get the chance to have such a positive birthing experience by hiring both a Midwife and Doula.
