A doula is there to ‘hold space’ for the woman, protecting her and advocating for her birth choices.
Doulas are there to serve YOU, not a hospital, and are there to support the birthing mum’s choices, without judgement.
Most recently, one of my own passion projects as a Doula has been to create the Birth Mama Yoga program, an online and in-person course designed to empower birthing women in their pregnancy journeys, discussing topics like pain relief, birth positions and preparing for unexpected outcomes. I’ve teamed up with a very special friend and prenatal yoga instructor to combine prenatal yoga with these important birth topics to give women a starting point on their journey to feeling empowered in their birthing experience. It is a stepping stone for women to then take matters into their own hands, either then by hiring a doula, and/or researching their rights and options within our current system. The bonus of including yoga is that both mind and body are strengthened, a skill handy for the intensity of birth.
