Labor Support for Pregnant Couples in Fairfield County
As you prepare for the delivery of your new baby, your thoughts may have wandered into what to expect during your labor. It can be a little overwhelming to know you will be delivering your baby without ever experiencing anything like it before. Having a Labor Support person or Doula from MothersCare Doula Services can make a big difference in the outcome – both on your experience and the emotional impact it will have on you and on your partner. A Doula is one who is professionally trained in childbirth and who provides ongoing emotional, physical, and educational support to a mother and father during labor and immediately afterwards. The Labor Support Doula from MothersCare also will help you to get off to a good start in the delivery room with breastfeeding as well. Studies show this kind of early latching of the baby can go a long way for ensuring successful breastfeeding.
In a hospital setting, the nurse’s role is to monitor the progress of the laboring mother. She comes in and out of the labor room checking on your progress. Most labor and delivery nurses would love to provide labor support, but they typically have little time to spend individually with each family. Staying with you during the entire labor is the Doula’s role. Her presence will relieve stress and provide the support you’ll need to have the outcome you want. Everyone’s goal is the same – to have a healthy baby so even if a caesarean section is needed you will know and feel good about doing everything you could to successfully deliver a healthy baby.
If you have recently found out you are expecting, or even have known for a while now but are just now mentally preparing for delivery, you probably have a lot of questions.
