Pregnancy and birth can be many things:
Something very private – something natural – something medical – something to share with family and friends but what it is above all is the experience of the person at the centre of it all;
That experience will be shaped by many things such as: how the woman feels about it, what she knows and what she doesn’t know, what her partner feels about the journey ahead, her background, her expectations, her environment, her confidence, the choices she will make and the decisions she will take as well as the support she will get throughout. Each woman’s experience will be different and different again with each pregnancy and birth. Preparing yourself for the birth will be key to making this experience more positive. Surrounding yourself with the right people with a positive attitude will help you see things more clearly. A Doula’s role is to make sure that you have all that you need to prepare, enjoy and navigate with ease through the pregnancy, Birth and the early days with your baby.
