What Is The Difference Between A Midwife & a Birth Doula?

As a licensed midwife, I am medically trained to support the physiological process of birth. We do all the prenatal appointments, the birth in your home, and all the postpartum appointments. We are trained medical providers that support you have a natural birth at home. To learn more about my midwifery page check out Home Midwifery

 

A Birth Doula is someone who supports you non medically prenatally to help you learn tools, gather resources, write your birth plan, learn your options for birth and after, and allow you to feel supported and prepared as you bring your child into this world. Our scope of practice is physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual support. We are on-call for you until you have your baby and support you give birth in the environment that works best for you. We are not medical professionals.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I am fully convinced that Amber was an angel sent from heaven to my birth.  Amber,  showed up at my birth and became a pillar of support during the birth that I hadn't realized I would need. She is highly intuitive, attuned and respectful, offering only as much inspiration as you need and as much physical support as you ask for. She's super gentle and super strong at the same time (probably due to her yoga practice) and I couldn't imagine a more perfect combination for birth support. She ended up staying on with me as a postpartum doula for over a month, underpinning my post-natal bonding bliss with all sorts of raw food concoctions and Aruyuvedic treats. She took took 'nurturing the nurturer' to a topnotch level! I'd probably never eaten as healthy in my life as I did when Amber was cooking so my little one got off to a terrific start and has continued to thrive. Thank you Amber for all you have done for us! ”

Is Homebirth Safe?

The best thing you can do is get informed. I encourage you to do your research. In California, we have a 30-70% chance of a Cesarean Birth when birthing in the hospital. And for some careproviders, it is even higher. In my years of experience, I have a 0-1% yearly cesarean rate and that is because our care is 100% different. 

Do Your Research!

Read this study of 500,000 women who chose to birth at home. The outcomes are significantly better than in hospitals and the risk of stillbirth, neonatal mortality or morbidity is not different whether birth is intended at home or hospital.

17,000 women chose to birth at home with midwifery lead care and the cesarean rate was only 5.2%.

MD associate professor of ob-gyn at Harvard Medical School explains why the cesarean section is so high.
