AS YOUR DOULA, I STAY BY YOUR SIDE!
Cesarean birth support is needed just as much if not more during your procedure. A caesarean section is an operation to give birth to your baby. Caesarean section surgery usually takes 30-60 minutes, although the entire process takes a few hours.
During the period before surgery, a doula can help explain procedures to you and help you get answers to any questions that you have, much like she would during a normal labor setting. A doula can help you manage painful procedures like the administration of an IV or even the spinal or an epidural for your surgery.
Once inside the operating room (OR) if allowed more than one support person, I will assist you in knowing what is going on by giving you details of whatever you wish to know. Your surgeon and assistants are busy doing the surgery. The nurses are preparing the room for the babee. Your partner is awaiting the babee and, if immediate skin-to-skin contact is not available, may soon go to the warmer to greet the babee. A doula will be at your side. I can take photos if you desire, particularly after the babee is born. I can remind the staff of any special requests you may have. If your babee needs to go to the nursery, Dad/partner can go with the babee. I also provide relief support for your partner to rest up or to leave and care for other children.
