As your Doula there are some aspects of the birthing process I am not educated or qualified to perform while you are in labor:
I do not perform clinical tasks.
I do not do vaginal examinations.
I do not do fetal heart rate checks.
I do not take your blood pressure.
I do not make decisions for you on what procedures you should or should not have.
I do not read medical equipment and tell you what I think.
I do not communicate to the medical staff in your place regarding matters where decisions must be made.
***My job is to educate you and your partner so the both of you can make educated decisions about your birth and baby, as well as, support you for the educated decisions you do make for your birthing experience.
