This is can be a big concern for most women who are pregnant.  Women often have anxiety about their water break in the theatre, while at the mall, in church, at a restaurant or at work. The good news is this only happens in 10% of women while at home or in the grocery store. 

I've been asked by many families if you only have a doula for the first birth. The answer is No. There are so many reasons you can have a birth doula regardless of which pregnancy this might be for you.

Ciera was a warrior through her pregnancy and chidbirth and is such an amazing mom to her beautiful little girl.  If you have a moment, please watch Ciera's real and raw video about pregnancy and childbirth and all that comes with it - ups, downs and everything in between.

Tamara was a wonderful doula! We had the pleasure of having her support us throughout the pregnancy, labor & delivery, and postpartum. During the pregnancy, she helped us build our birthing plan, research treatments for my diagnosis of gestational diabetes, and prepare and transition into a family of 5.

Birth Doula. Birth Companion. Birth Coach.  All are various descriptions that are commonly used to describe a doula.   The word doula is a Greek word meaning “woman's servant.” Women have been serving others in childbirth for centuries and have proven that support from women has a positive impact on labor.  Find out how doula can help you achieve a natural childbirth.

Thinking you won’t be prepared and this will happen at the worst possible time?   Don't worry, its less common that you think. Having your water break as the first sign of labor actually only happens 10% or less of the time.

Nurses and doctors are in out.  Cords are all over the place keeping an eye on you and baby making their sounds.    Lots of questions are occuring and decisions need to be during various parts of your labor.  Sometimes all of this can be a little overwhelming and you are not sure what to do.

Last year, I spent the weekend in northern Ohio at a training workshop.  The training was not something that I wanted to do, as I knew it would be highly emotional.   But I knew it was something that I HAD to do.   Birth is not routine, every birth is different and not all births have the outcome that any one wants.    The seminar was a training on how to be a Bereavement Doula.   A doula for families dealing with the loss, whether unexpected or planned, or their baby.
