Doulas and Dads
Your Doula can assist the father with being involved in the birth of your baby. During the birthing process it may be hard for your partner to see you in pain and discomfort. Therefore, the Doula can work with the father to help him know what to do to comfort you during labor.
A doula can remain objective and calm and help to remove any fears that the two of you might have. If you experience a long and tiring birth process your Doula will also be there to give you both reassurance and support.
Heather Shelley is one of our midwives that has been trained as a doula in hypnosis births. She is available to help those of you who have taken hypnobabies (r) and are looking for a midwife trained in that method of childbirth.
