Supporting you with your pregnancy and birth journey
Experienced doulas will provide physical, emotional & informational support to a couple before, during & after birth. We can help before birth by creating a birth preference list and answering any questions and concerns that arise during pregnancy. We can be a vital part of your labor team to increase your chances of having that natural labor with a lower risk of cesarean section with us by your side. Our doula team also loves helping mothers after the babies come with breastfeeding, answering postpartum questions, and guiding the gentle transition into parenthood.
what is a doula?
Experience a Calm and Happy Birth with Doula Support
A doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, physical, and informational support to individuals and families during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. At Farmington Birth Center, our team of experienced doulas is dedicated to helping you have a positive and empowering birth experience.
Many couples find that having a doula present at their birth significantly reduces the fatigue they experience during labor. Doulas are specially trained to support their clients before, during, and after childbirth, which can help reduce the stress and anxiety often experienced in labor. Doulas also support partners, helping them feel more confident in their roles. Additionally, postpartum doulas can provide invaluable support in the early weeks after giving birth, helping to ease the transition to parenthood and the expansion of the family.
