Did you know that Doulas Support Cesarean Birth?
Every mother deserves to be emotionally & physically supported & informed of her options, regardless of what kind of birth she has.
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine issued a joint statement where hiring a doula is stated as one of the most effective ways to prevent a cesarean. (link provided below) Yet, sometimes unexpected complications can still arise or you may choose to have an elective cesarean section. A doula will still be a very active supporter and significant member to your birth team in both situations.
So, the answer is yes! Doulas Do Support Cesarean Birth! Doulas are for absolutely every birth! As a doula, I support my clients wholeheartedly through their birth experiences, regardless if their birth plan includes or excludes medical intervention. It is my passion to provide clients with unbiased information so that they may make choices they feel work best for their family.
