Answers to your Questions

Do you perform any physical examinations?

It is not within my scope to give medical advice. I only present the evidence-based facts and facilitate discussion so that you can advocate and make medical decisions for yourself. I do not and am not qualified to perform any medical procedures including but not limited to cervical checks, blood pressure checks, fetal heart rate monitoring, delivering/catching your baby, etc. I am not a health care professional e.g a Midwife and will not act as one should there not be one present (whether in a BBA situation or due to maternal choice). I do not drive clients or their baby(ies) in my car UNLESS it is an emergency. I adhere carefully to the parameters of my scope for the safety and security of myself, you, and your baby.

What are your interactions with medical staff like?

I will ensure that their preferences and birth plan are communicated effectively to the medical team. They may help clarify any concerns or questions that the birthing person has about their medical care. I will share relevant information with the medical team, such as the progress of labour, the birthing person's preferences, and any significant changes in the birthing person's condition.

I can offer comfort measures, such as massage, positioning suggestions, and emotional support, to help the birthing person manage the intensity of labour.

How will hiring you affect my partner’s role during the birth?

Having a doula should not affect your already chosen birth partner/s role or presence.
Having a doula is having an extra person to advocate, educate and support everyone.

You are never too old to learn something new. so why not make use of someone else's for this short time?
