Do you only support pain med free births?
The answer to this question also addresses one of my core beliefs about being a Doula; your birth is not my birth.
I believe you should experience your pregnancy and birth the way you want it, not the way I want it, your friend wants it, your Doctor of Midwife wants it, or your family wants it. My support reflects this.
The choice to use pain medications as a tool in your labor and birth, as well as all the other choices you will make throughout this process are completely yours to make.
For those clients unsure about their choices and options, our prenatal sessions can provide you with the opportunity to learn and ask questions. I will also help you design your birth plan, if this is something you’re interested in.
Bottomline – no matter the level of medicinal pain management you chose, I will bring with me the same arsenal of experience, knowledge and techniques to help you cope with labour.
