Welcome to Caring Doula! I started this blog to reach out to expecting mothers and families who are thinking of hiring a doula, and to provide helpful information and discussions about pregnancy, labor, birth, and babies. I became interested in becoming a doula after my daughter was born in 2010, and through my research and experience I discovered that women have the right and the power to decide what kind of birth is right for them. It is my job as a doula to give you all of the knowledge necessary for you to decide what you want for your birth and your baby, and to support your decision to the best of my abilities with unbiased care and support.
Even if you decide not to have a doula, I hope this blog can provide some perspective and inspiration about labor and the birth of babies. One of the most important things I have learned is that the welcoming of a new baby into this world, to a safe and warm environment filled with love and joy, is our top priority as parents and caregivers.
