A birth doula is a person who provides unbiased physical, emotional, and informational support throughout your pregnancy, birth, and immediate postpartum period. When you hire a Tucson Doulas labor doula team you are getting trained and certified professionals who are available to you 24/7 from the moment of hire until you deliver your baby.
Why should I hire a doula for my upcoming birth?
Hiring a doula is one way to make sure you and your partner are supported and encouraged as you add a child to your life. They are uniquely trained to understand the dynamics of pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum time period. Doulas are an invaluable resource for information, inspiration, confidence, and physical/emotional support. Even the most prepared parents who have taken every class available can benefit from a doula’s guidance, reassurance, and expertise. Our doulas are with you every step of the way. Doula care is shown to improve birth outcomes, lower unwanted interventions, decrease labor times, and improve overall satisfaction with the birth experience. The memory of your child’s birth will last a lifetime, and a great doula can help that memory be a positive and empowering one!
The Tucson Doulas Difference
Our birth doulas are certified and carefully selected. We have the highest standards in Tucson and as such all of our doulas have been through a rigorous training, evaluation, interview, and orientation process prior to working with our clients. Our doulas meet our high standards through certification, training, continuing education, advanced doula trainings, and regular staff meetings. They always provide professional and compassionate care, putting the needs of our clients as top priority. We are the only doulas in Tucson working in teams of two. You get two doulas to support you throughout your entire pregnancy, and then one of those amazing doulas will attend your birth on your special day.
Working with Your Doula Team
During such a transformational time, having the kind of support that’s right for you is so important! We love being able to offer personalized doula care for our clients during pregnancy, birth, and immediately following. Once you hire us, our doulas go on call for you and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until you deliver your baby. This is one of the things that sets Tucson Doulas apart! We are there for you, day or night, when you need us most. We will match you with a two-person doula team, and they will both be with you throughout your pregnancy. Our doula care includes unlimited phone and email support, up to two in-person prenatal visits with your doula team, labor support, immediate postpartum support, and an in-person postpartum visit within the first 3 weeks of settling in at home. Because our doulas are required to continue their education through additional workshops, classes, seminars, reading, and research, our clients know that they are getting doulas at the top of their field. Our doulas are knowledgeable, up-to-date on relevant evidence-based practices, skilled in communication, instinctively nurturing and compassionate, and ready to make sure our clients’ needs are met every step of the way. Together you will build a custom support plan, and when the big day comes one of your doulas will join you during labor. That same doula will visit with you in your home within the first 3 weeks following your baby’s birth. Hiring a Tucson Doulas birth doula team means that you will have nurturing, reliable, skilled companionship throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
