Even if you have a midwife as your primary care to deliver your baby and care for you and your baby during pregnancy, labor, and after the birth, having a doula is an important ingredient that you may need to offer support, guidance, and practical help throughout your childbirth and beyond.
For women who have decided to have a medicated birth, one of the benefits from a birth doula is providing you support through your early labor and administration of the epidural. Doulas work alongside mothers after the epidural is in to keep interventions down to a minimum.
Choosing your birth doula is an extremely personal decision. As you make this decision, we will set an appointment for you to get to know your chosen doula team.  That chosen team will be on call for you throughout your pregnancy.  When it comes to delivery time, one of the doulas from your team will be by your side.

Doulas and midwives are very similar. However, midwives provide medical care for you during your pregnancy, birth, and immediate postpartum period while a doula provide you and your partner emotional, informational, and physical support during your labor.

As your partner is surely with you every step of the way, they may not always know what they can do to help. That is why you should hire a doula from Northeast Doulas to talk you through the pregnancy and birthing process and help you outline your partner’s role in your journey.

By having the doula by your side for each contraction we help you have the most empowering birthing experience regardless of the outcome.

Doulas are not the same thing as a midwife as midwives provide medical care during your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period whereas a doula provides you and your family with emotional, informational and physical support at different stages of your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period.
Doulas will provide invaluable support not just for birthing women but also their partners, children, and families too. Having your health care team with a trusted doula gives you the opportunity to rest, reflect, and care for yourself. Doulas gives judgment-free advice and encouragement for new parents without any relational baggage that family members might bring in.
Our recommendation is to hire a doula to support both you and your partner. We find that unless the partner has been trained, being the doula to someone you are emotionally attached to, poses certain challenges.
Doulas will not have any agenda and will only offer non-judgmental support on all kinds of births. A doula’s job is to help you make choices that are right for you. Different doulas will have different specialties and are trained to support all births –  hospital, with midwives, doctors, medication free or with pain medication, vaginal or caesarean.
For mothers who choose to encapsulate their placenta, the encapsulation process typically occurs immediately after birth (initiated within 24 hours after birth) and the postpartum parent starts to ingest their placenta within a few days. If the client needs to delay the process, that is not a problem.  The placenta will be moved into the freezer until the night before the service begins.
One of the benefits of placenta encapsulation includes a decrease in postpartum mood disorders, increased production of oxytocin, a decrease in stress hormones, restoration of iron levels following bleeding after childbirth, and increased milk supply.

Doctors and nurses are always often happy to have doulas working with them. Medical care providers are watching out for so many aspects of the mother’s and baby’s clinical care and may not be able to provide the emotional support a woman may desire in labor just like a doula does.
We offer continued support to the whole family even after the contract is completed. We are happy to answer any questions and we encourage continued support.
Doulas are very supportive in all kinds of births. Even so if you didn’t want a natural birth, a doula is incredibly important especially if you are a first-time mother who needs help and assistance in navigating birthing methods and want to get extra physical, emotional, and mental support.
