Two Doulas are Better than One!

You are pregnant and you’re checking all the boxes on your to do list. You’ve hired the best provider, check! You’ve taken the top childbirth classes in the area, check! You hired a doula, check! She is familiar with who you are and she knows your birth preferences. She is ready to support you in exactly the way you need to be supported. You are all set up to have a wonderful birth experience, check! But what if something comes up and Your doula is unable to make it to your birth?

Here at BirthME, Maine’s premier doula service , we don’t think you should have to worry about who your “mystery backup doula” might be. That is why when you hire BirthME you get not one, but two doulas from the very beginning. A doula team, because two doulas are better than one. Both of your doulas will attend your prenatal visits spending time with you and your partner. You will build a relationship of trust. Both doulas will know and respect your birth preferences, your hopes and desires for your birth experience. When you are ready for that additional support during your labor, It’s one of your two personal doulas that arrives at your door. No mystery back­up here.

Of course life happens, but it’s of the utmost importance for you to know that someone you recognize and trust will be by your side. There are enough things to think about during pregnancy. Whether or not your doula will actually attend your birth shouldn’t be one of them. With BirthME doula partners, you don’t have to give it a second thought. When your doula arrives to lend her support, it will be a warm, smiling face you recognize.
