Why Can’t My Partner Be My Doula?

  • Sometimes your partner is not the best for ALL labor support…
  • Be realistic, there’s fluids, blood, possibly some pooping and it’s difficult to see your most loved person in a lot a pain
  • A doula is there to support you, and your birth partner to be able to guide the room, possibly give partner breaks if needed, and also give you both space and privacy as needed as well 

How To Find A Doula

  • Ask friends who had doulas who live locally
  • Ask local mom group for doula recommendations
  • Interview 2-4 doulas to see who resonates with you the best
  • Financial concerns? Check out local doula certification programs – often times new doulas will do their first births as volunteers, or at discounted prices
