Labor Support​

 

When embarking on one of life's most transformational life events you (and your partner) may fantasize about the kind of birth you would have. You may have dreamed of even the littlest details, perhaps recognizing that in the end you desire a satisfying experience no matter the location or outcome. You may have so many different emotions rising to the surface as it is all becoming too real. You may feel like you're not quite ready, like as though you are missing something. 

A DOULA CAN CALMLY AND SKILLFULLY ASSIST IN COPING WITH LABOR AND BE A CONSISTENT PRESENCE FOR YOU AND YOUR PARTNER

 

By hiring Aspired Mother, you can receive a level of support that is different from your birth partner's. Aspired Mother doulas can offer you support, resources, reassurance, options and someone to be there to guide you, every step of the way. We can help you identify options available to you, help you understand what to expect and what is most likely to come up next, and share resources so you don't have to spend any time researching for the best providers in South Florida.

We view this very much as a team effort, so let go of the notion that you should do it all yourself. Your partner will also appreciate the knowledge and extra set of hands. ​​

We work with your birth partner(s).

 

Let's take a moment and recognize that your spouse, partner, mother, sister, best friend, and/or adoptive parent have a strong desire to help, to participate, to feel useful and active throughout the entire journey. But, when two or more people share an emotional bond and an ongoing relationship, it is very difficult for those companions to remain continuously objective, calm, and removed to some degree from your discomfort and fears, or any danger.

Your chosen birth partner(s) will benefit from our presence as we will assist them in supporting you during labor and first few hours after birth. We may suggest positions, pain-coping practices, or comfort measures such as massage. They may offer breathing techniques, encouragement and a shoulder to lean on. Aspired Mother's approach isn't to overshadow, but to enhance the moment. Most partners express their gratitude for the chance to step away, take a break to re energize, without leaving you alone with no support.

Studies have shown that births have

with a Doula in attendance 

We work with your medical provider(s).

 

A doula's main roles are to provide physiological, psychosocial, and informative support as well as advocacy. This can include unbiased evidence based information to support your decision making, educating you on the birth process, encouraging you to speak up and have your needs met, as well as keeping you comfortable during labor and birth.

 

Medical providers like to know that their patients will have continuous care, as they unfortunately have other responsibilities that keep them away until it is medically necessary. Aspired Mother doulas work alongside your medical providers, but are not there to replace or interfere. In fact, doulas cover much of the ground that a doctor/midwife does not. While your providers are there to ensure that you are medically looked after, our doulas are there to compliment their work in order for your birth to go smoothly with minimal trauma. 

If an epidural or a cesarean is medically necessary for the health and safety of you and your newborn our doula will be able to provide the same quality of support and comfort. Whether it is to answer questions, support your partner or in emergency stay by your side while you partner goes with your newborn.

"Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.     "
