Having a Doula in the delivery room is becoming more common. But is it for you?
You've planned your birth down to the last detail, from capturing the moment with pictures to managing labor pain. But have you considered hiring a doula, a specialized labor companion?
At Journey Birth and Wellness we provide services that ensure you get the birth experience you want. Here's why you should consider working with us.
What Is a Doula?
According to DONA International, a Doula is defined as,
"A trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to a mother before, during, and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible."
We currently offer Doula services to women that need support from all cultures and communities in and around Fort Wayne, Indiana. We meet with clients for prenatal visits, offer full support while in labor, and continue to meet with them during the postpartum period. We offer education so they are empowered to make informed decisions about their care and the care of their newborn. We help support and build community so that no woman feels alone during this precious time in their life.
Our Doula Services
We currently offer doula services to women that need support from within their communities. We meet with clients for prenatal visits, offer full support while in labor, and continue to meet with them during the postpartum period. We offer education so they are empowered to make informed decisions on their care, and the care of their newborn.
We know it takes a village to raise a child, so we help support and build community so that no woman feels alone during this precious time in their life. Here's how we do that:
- Provide information and resources leading up to birth
- Provide emotional support and physical comfort during labor
- Help ensure a safe, fulfilling, and empowering birth experience
- Provide information on infant feeding, soothing, and newborn care
- Nurture both mom and baby during the first few weeks after birth
