Let’s face it …today the majority of births occur in hospitals with a lesser percent in birth centers and at home.In America, a large amount of birthing mothers, look to obstetricians for prenatal, birth and postpartum care.
On the other hand, this is changing as some hospitals have created family birthing environments,greater support for birth choices and obstetricians are encouraging and supporting parents to become aware of their many choices in care with midwives and CNM’s Home Water Births too.. Up until now, you may feel that your partner is sufficient support and you don’t need another person to attend your needs.
However, wait until you see how labor can be long, your partner may need to support you through hours of latent labor, there is no one to relieve them for bathroom breaks, to acquire nutrition or even just a moment to rest. It turns out, the nurses obviously have other patients to tend to or paperwork and may not be able to attend to your needs consistently during your labor that’s why you’re being monitored by machines so they can view you at the nurses station Just let this sink in for a minute …machine a monitor and not a person but, if you prefer a personalize doula who can come to your home to assist and support in early labor and is a constant presence during active labor and birth. And here is the great news for you, a Doula makes sure both the mother and partner have comfort and support.
And of course, some women feel that extra support is not needed because they have chosen medication during birth. however, that’s not all; the benefits of having labor support go beyond medication choices.
