Words from the Midwives
Wisdom, stories and truths
The world is crazy right now, eh? Schools are closing, social distancing is a thing, and there are travel bans all due to the Coronavirus.
With all of the uncertainty, some hospitals are not allowing doulas to provide care at the labor & birth of their clients. While we understand that this might provide a security for policy of fewer people equaling fewer chances of germs, it can also create a tension for those who have a doula written into their birth plan. Doulas have significant value before, during, and after childbirth. Having a doula drastically reduces many of the "cascade of events" which often lead to birth trauma.
This is why we want you to know that your doula is welcome at your homebirth inside the Red Tent with us. If your hospital of choice establishes a no-doula policy, you can be sure we have not.
