Education is the key to achieving your ideal birthing experience! Even though there is no absolute in this universe, it really does make a huge difference if you are knowledgeable for your birthing experience. Whether you are birthing with an OB or a midwife and a Doula by your side, it is important to have some sort of plan in place for your birth. This lets your healthcare provider and birth Doula know your desires for your birth. As for you, designing your birth plan will help establish your birthing goals and bring about knowledge of some situations that may arise during your birth. You will be prepared and know exactly how you would like to handle them. Nothing is worse than being in a situation, uneducated, unprepared and not know what to do.
I have seen really detailed, explicit birth plans and I have seen very light to the point birth plans. Create one that works for you! As a birth Doula, I like to see birth plans. They help me become educated about my clients, that way I can help them achieve their desires and wishes for their birth.
Through childbirth education, I am running across more and more couples that are not really sure what they desire for their birth. If you are a first time mom or have a heart of an athlete and you are interested in a home birth or birth center birth, I want to help you create a birth plan that works for you. In 1 ½ hours we will cover all the options for a birth plan, I will educate you in the benefits/risks of each option and you will have your birth plan created by the end of our session.
Your birth planning session should not replace a childbirth education class. I do encourage you to take a childbirth education class for additional information. I highly recommend Birth Boot Camp classes online at http://birthbootcamp.com/online-childbirth-education-classes/?ap_id=sld2013.
A birth planning session can be done face to face in the comfort of your own home or via Skype. We will find a time that works for both of us. I encourage you to have you and your partner present for the birth planning session. Please contact me with the contact form below for additional information and cost. I look forward to meeting you very soon and helping you create a birth plan that works for you!!
Giving birth is an exciting, life changing event. Be prepared!! You will talk about this day for the rest of your life!!
I am accepting birth Doula clients in September, October and November 2016 in the DFW Texas and surrounding areas.
