Birthing Labor Doula and Post Partum Care

Labor Doula

Labor Doula Supports during birthA labor doula provides emotional support, physical comfort measures, and an objective viewpoint, as well as helping the woman educate herself to make informed decisions. A labor doula stays by the side of the woman throughout the entire labor and facilitates communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and clinical care providers. A labor doula assists the woman and her partner in preparing for and carrying out their plans for the birth. A labor doula is a nurturer and protector of the woman's memory of the birth experience.

The labor doula is educated in the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor. She works with local OB/Gyn practices and midwives to facilitate your birthing experience. She is not a medical provider.

Allison provides support at the hospitals in the Burlington Vermont area.
