We are there to advocate for you regardless if it is a c-section or vaginal delivery. Doulas are sometimes allowed in the operating room for support if that is what you would like. If not, we can help you gain perspective of the situation and help to slow things down taking the “emergency” out of a non-emergency situation. Doulas are there to remind the whole birth team what your wishes are and to help keep the mom relaxed and calm. We can help after the birth to process the experience and help to alleviate any concerns and help with all the emotions involved with a c-section. We can help with breastfeeding also. We can help to facilitate skin to skin after a c-section which is very important for bonding, breastfeeding, temperature and blood sugar balancing in the baby.
