WHAT WE DO
A birth plan is a short document to take with you to Labor and Delivery that lets the providers there know what your preferences are during labor. It is important to keep your birth plan simple and easy to understand. Providing a copy to all those involved in your labor can eliminate miscommunication, help labor go smoother, and keep your wishes from being dismissed.
One of the most important choices you need to make as a new mom is how you will feed your baby. It’s a good idea to have a think about this well ahead of time. We are here to help you with your planning.Research shows that breastfeeding provides many health benefits for you and your baby. But it also can be difficult to manage to breastfeed in today’s hurried world. Learning all you can before you give birth can help. The decision to breastfeed is a personal one. As a new mom, you deserve support no matter how you decide to feed your baby.
A doula is a woman servant, a birth companion, a birth coach, a post-birth supporter, a non-medical person assisting and supporting a woman before, during, or after childbirth. She provides emotional, spiritual and physical help if needed. Plus a Doula may also provide support to the mother's partner and family.
