Benefits of hiring a seasoned doula
Previously, I wrote about some of the benefits you may experience by choosing a new doula in your community. What are the benefits of hiring a more experienced doula?
Experienced doulas have developed relationships with the birth professionals and medical staff in your area. They are familiar to her, and she to them.
She is calm and familiar in many birth scenarios.
Her past experience helps her maintain a calm presence in a wide variety of situations.
She is well practiced in putting herself aside and putting your best interests first.
Their knowledge of birth has become deeply ingrained, almost instinctual.
Give the seasoned doula a chance! The knowledge, confidence, and calming presence of the seasoned doula may be just what you are looking for in your birth team!
