What is the Doula's role?

As a birth doula we are here to assist you and your partner have the kind of birth that you envision. We provide emotional, informational, and physical support by:

  1. suggesting labor techniques for positions, relaxation, breath work

  2. offering evidence-based information as needed

  3. helping explain the medical procedures, intervention, options

Our job is to nurture and support - our agenda is tied only to the birthing partner's agenda. This is known as the primacy of interest. In other words, our responsibility is to the birthing person's desires and wishes, not to our own agendas.

What Doulas DON'T do:

  1. they do not perform clinical tasks such as vaginal exams or fetal monitoring

  2. they do not give medical advice or diagnose conditions

  3. they do not make decisions for the birthing person

  4. they do not take over the role of partner/spouse/father

  5. they do not pressure the birthing person to make certain choices

  6. they do not catch the baby

  7. they do not change shifts, or talk to the staff for you
