When you go into labour, don't worry about remembering what to do when - Call your doula!
She will make sure that you and your partner are cared for and loved on your big day, remind you of your preferences, meet your needs, and squeeze your hips. When your baby is born, she will make sure to snap a few pictures to capture that incredible moment, and then help you feed your baby for the first time - however you choose.
As you transition into parenthood, your doula remains available to support you. Whatever questions you may have about the birth, newborn care, healing and recovery, your doula will be able to connect you with the postpartum resources you need.
"It is nearly impossible to put into words what Shannon’s support during my VBAC meant to me and my family. She has a gentleness about her that comforted us right from our first meeting. Shannon came with zero agenda and was truly there to support us in whatever birth experience we wanted. She eased my husband's worries about his role in this birth and he ended up feeling so encouraged by her that he was excited for things to start happening!"
