5 Tips for Pregnant Moms in the Know by a postpartum doula in Metro Detroit, Michigan.

Ever wonder what tips I offer pregnant women?

I’m a postpartum doula and my expertise is in caring for new moms and their families.  But you can’t be a doula (even a postpartum doula) for long and not pick up tips that you want to share with every expecting woman!

The 5 tips I share are…

  • 3.  Interview and Hire a Labor Doula and Postpartum Doula.    Learn more about the research that supports powerful benefits of hiring a doula.  For instance, “A meta-analysis of 11 clinical trials showed that having a labor doula present continuously throughout labor significantly shortened labor, and decreased the need for analgesia, Pitocin, cesarean sections, and forceps. (Scott, Berkowitz, Klaus, 2000),” I found this quote in the Labor Doula Position Paper on www.cappa.net.

  • 4.  Understand “Informed Consent.”  The definition is “Consent by a patient to a surgical or medical procedure or participation in a clinical study after achieving an understanding of the relevant medical facts and the risks involved.” according to The American Heritage® Medical Dictionary Copyright © 2007, 2004 by Houghton Mifflin Company.
