WHETHER ITS A FAMILY'S FIRST BABY OR TENTH, A DOULA CAN HELP MAKE THE BIRTH AND POSTPARTUM EXPERIENCE BETTER

A trained doula is a professional who is educated and experienced to provide continuous physical, emotional and informational support to folks before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

Countless scientific trials examining doula care demonstrate remarkably improved physical and psychological outcomes for parents

COVID-19 AND DOULAS

Doulas are essential birth workers and are currently permitted in the Dawson Creek and District Hospital , doulas are do not count towards your one support person. Bloom doulas are taking extra precautions to stop the spread of COVID-19 and following the recommended guidelines.

As supported by both The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist (ACOG) and The Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), doulas are an important part of the care team and provide informational and emotional support as well as comfort measures for patients during birth.  Numerous clinical trials show that when doulas are present for families, healthier outcomes are possible. According to the Cochrane database,  “Continuous support during labour may improve outcomes for women and infants, including increased spontaneous vaginal birth, shorter duration of labour, and decreased caesarean birth, instrumental vaginal birth, use of any analgesia, use of regional analgesia, low five-minute Apgar score and negative feelings about childbirth experiences.”(2017, Bohren et al. ” Continuous support for women during childbirth.” 2017
