WHAT ABOUT THE PARTNER?
Just like a doula is not a midwife, nurse or doctor, she’s not the partner of the woman in labour either. For a partner the birth can be a difficult process. It is easy to get carried away with emotion or to not know the best way of giving support. I can encourage your partner to participate in the birth as much as they want
My goal therefore is to take the pressure away from their shoulders. Both during pregnancy and the birth itself, I can provide special attention to the things a partner can do for you, whilst supporting your partner in a way that they feel confident in taking good care of you. This way a partner can be there for you wholeheartedly.
