Questions For Your Doula
Answering Our Most Frequent Questions
A doula is like a cheerleader and a confidant to help you have the best possible birth or postpartum experience. A postpartum doula like myself will provide support with cooking, breast/bottle feeding, and household tasks like tidying, laundry and dishes. And some doulas will provide more ceremonial services like belly binding, closing the bones, postpartum baths and womb steaming.
The average hourly rate for a postpartum doula is $35-40/hour. Rates will vary depending on location and specialized offerings.
It is important to “click” with your doula. You can ask basic questions like…What services do you offer? What does a postpartum visit look like? Are you training in CPR? But also go a little deeper… What draws you to this profession? What do you like best about being a doula?
There is often a misperception of the difference between midwives and birth doulas. Midwives are healthcare providers who are accountable to both the mom-to-be and their governing College. They monitor the health and safety of your pregnancy, birth and immediate postpartum. A birth doula helps you plan and prepare for birth physically, mentally, and emotionally. She is present during the birth to coach and encourage. A postpartum doula helps after the birth and brings the cheerleading and assistance to the recovery period.
