Once you get pregnant, one of the major considerations you need to make is to ensure that you have a good doctor. As much as you have a good doctor, having an extra support can be really reassuring and it is recommended that you should consider having a doula. They play a great role when you are about to become a parent for the first time.

The role of a doula is very different from that of a doctor or a midwife. She is professionally trained to support you during and at the end of the pregnancy. She is trained to help you manage the pain through relaxation techniques as well as any kind of emotional support that you may need. Whatever kind of question that you may be having, she answers you and also in good creation of a birth plan.

As a first time mother, doula’s support is very beneficial to you. A –doula is experienced and will offer you all the support, advice as well as reassurance before the delivery day. For instance, a doula will be willing to help you know how to prepare for the labor and delivery of the baby. She calms any doubts and fears that you may be having.

A doula will help in making the birth plan by discussing with you all the alternatives available for you. For instance, you may choose epidural delivery or the C-section delivery. Once the delivery is done, a doula will help you take good care of the baby during the first days at home.

Midwives and doctors attend to patients because it is their duty and sometimes they may feel like they are being forced and may not have effective communication with the parent. For the doula, she is considerate, stays with you in the room during this time and she explains any details that may have been overlooked by the medical staff tending to you.

Sometimes, as a mother, you may have lots of doubts, you do not know how to go about things and your partner may become overwhelmed in the room. With the presence of a doula in your room, it can be very reassuring thus easing the situation that may otherwise have been hard.

According to studies, having a continuous support during labor helps in reducing any pain thus there little or no need of pain-relief medication. A doula also seems to shorten the labor duration thus reducing the need to undergo a cesarean section. The child birth experience is also satisfying.

If you have thoughts of giving birth in a natural way without having to take any medication, it is advisable to hire a doula as she will help you in a lot of ways that you may not be aware of.
