As your Doula I Do Not:
Perform Any Clinical Task
It is not within a doula's scope of practice to perform clinical task such as taking blood pressure, listening to fetal heart tones, cervical examinations, etc.. My presence at your birth is primarily to provide physical support and comfort measures, emotional support, as well as informational support.
Make decisions for you
I will provide you with unlimited access to fact and evidence based information necessary to help guide you to make informed decisions for your family. I will also remind you if the is a departure from your specified birth preferences.
Speak to the staff on your behalf
During my role as your doula I will serve as your advocate, equipping you and your birth partner with the tools needed to effectively communicate with your birthing staff regarding concerns about your care
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
Each birth is a sacred and personal experience that I feel blessed to attend and for each birth experience I check my own judgments, and biases at the door. I am open minded and always willing to learn from new experiences with clients, families, and healthcare providers. Most importantly throughout our time together I will work to teach you the value of trusting your own instincts and judgments without requiring validation from others.
