Doulas Work WITH Your Provider
Doulas work with obstetricians, family practice doctors, and midwives. We work to facilitate positive communication with your provider and answer any questions you might have about your care in a way that you can understand. We offer information on their policies and practices without the bias of working FOR their office. Your doula provides continuity of care and autonomy; in a hospital setting it is easy for women to become lost in the hospital system – a doula helps you remain on course.
Doulas Work FOR You
Doulas offer support, knowledge, and encouragement. Houston Doulas have many years of experience being involved in many different birth settings. Doulas can help in unassisted home births, in home births with midwives, in birthing center births, and in hospital births. We work to make sure that your desires for birth and newborn care are honored and to help ensure that you have a safe and satisfying birthing experience. We remain with you from the time that you call us to your side until after birth – no shift changes or on-call rosters. A doula is a good investment; their sole care/concern is you and your baby. Having someone who understands what you’re going through, who can help ensure that your birthing experience is the best it can be.
