Creating The Very Best Birth Plan

My role as a doula is to help women understand their options, discuss possible scenarios, and determine a birth plan that best suits them. I help families carry out their birth plans by providing constant physical, emotional and informational support throughout the labor and birth process and by remaining present for up to 2 hours after the birth to help with recovery and ensure breastfeeding is being established (if desired). Being a self-employed professional, I work for the woman/couple that hires me, and will advocate for them in whatever setting they choose.
