"My husband (partner) is my left hand and my doula is my right."
– from Doulas Making a Difference
At You & Me Birth Services we know that welcoming a new child into your family is one of the most exciting experiences of your life. But with that excitement comes a rollercoaster of other emotions. Through our postpartum support services we hope to help you navigate those emotions so you can have the best childbirth experience possible.
Your doula is there to support you physically, emotionally, and informationally not only as you give birth to your child but as you give birth to yourself as a mother. Doulas do not replace your partner, mother, nurse or medical staff. They do not perform medical procedures or require you deliver naturally or without meds. Doulas foster an environment of peace and welcoming and dedicate themselves to making you feel like the rockstar you are.
Postpartum doulas work with your family to help your transition of bringing baby home go as smoothly as possible. We strive to alleviate whatever stresses you are experiencing in the first 9-12 weeks of your child's life. This may take the form of running errands for you, cleaning, cooking, or soothing baby on those early sleepless nights so you can get some much needed rest.
