These are uncertain times, but we are still here for you...
The Covid-19 pandemic has turned our lives upside down. One of the changes is the move to virtual everything. Virtual visits are recommended and some times mandated for promote safety for everyone from the coronavirus illness. Doulas are not medical professionals and we follow CDC regulations in order to keep our clients and communities safe. It is outside our scope of practice to offer any type of medical advice as well as provide any type of support that is against the law or state regulations. All of this to say, that Doula support looks very different now. Meeting clients in their home and sharing a cup of coffee was a favorite past time of doula support, but really isn't common right now. So why hire a doula? Well, doula support can still be useful, especially during this time. Although the prenatal visit appointments will be virtual, hospitals are allowing doulas AND another support person in the birthing room. Due to our network of Birth Professionals, we usually have access to information and the changing policies surrounding covid-19 and often times, Doulas will have information that their clients do not have. We have also narrowed down the research to evidence-based information and save clients from having to figure it all out alone.
We understand wholeheartedly how these uncertain times are impacting day to day lives. We hope you can find solace in the fact that you can call and/or text your doula for the latest information. Besides our resources, we will do the same things as would do pre-covid, such as talk, drink coffee or tea via zoom or another platform and discuss you, birth, last night's episode of your favorite show, how to prepare for postpartum, and anything else we feel like talking about.
