Sometimes there is a misunderstanding of what a doula is and in what ways she helps. A doula can be beneficial for any birth situation - home, birth center, hospital, vaginal, or cesarean. I've been fortunate to work with families in each of these cases, and while my specific tasks may vary from one situation to the next my role is always to help support the parents in THEIR birth choices:

“Heidi was wonderful with the hospital staff and since she knew exactly what I wanted for this birth from our meetings she was able to help me communicate my birth plan and wishes when I was unable to do so myself. I had never considered a doula with my other births because I thought doulas were only for people having homebirths with midwives but I was SO wrong! If we have anymore children Heidi is on the top of the list of people we call first!” – Katie
