Imagine how confident you and your partner will feel when labor begins and you have your doula’s support to rely on. YOU will have no unanswered questions. Benefit from her knowledge and stay relaxed knowing that her comfort, information, perspective and encouragement is around each corner you turn.
Your doula will use her expertise and experience to help you know when it is time to go to the hospital and will help facilitate a smooth transition from home to hospital. The relief that comes with knowing that your doula is with you every step of the way is immeasurable.
Once with you, your Labor Doula will provide support that is tailored to you, your family, your priorities and your desires. She will help you settle into your labor room and will continue her support for you and your partner throughout your labor and birth. She will provide continuous care and be a source of information and comfort until you meet your baby.
Once your baby arrives, your doula will spend time supporting early breastfeeding and helping you freshen up and settle in.
Continuity of support is absolutely essential for your postpartum recovery, so Doulas of Los Angeles includes a postpartum visit in every Labor Doula contract.
