What is a Doula?
Hi Mommas and Mommas-to-Be!
Our doula, Ambrosia, has been such a special part of our baby story with Remi Rain. When my husband first approached me about getting a doula for our adoption I, who had always learned that a doula was more for the prenatal and birth, said “A doula? Honey, you don’t know what you’re talking about.” But once we met with Ambrosia she shared with us the role she plays in any and every type of baby story and having her be a part of welcoming Remi to the world was the best thing we could have done!
If you’re just starting your pregnancy or you’re getting really close to delivery and have a bunch of questions and are unsure of what to expect then a doula is the person to go to for your answers and that’s what we’re going to do today!
Watch my video below to learn what doula’s do, when you should start to look for a doula, and what a doula can do before, during and after birth for everyone involved.
Have you had a doula be a part of your baby story? I’d love to hear about your experiences with doulas too! Comment below and share them with me.
