Are you a Birth Professional interested in offering Birth Doula Centering to your own clients?
You & Your Doula
Your relationship with your primary doula is equally as important as the group learning. You have the opportunity to schedule private 1:1 meetings with your primary doula, which are conducted immediately after each Centering topic night. This allows for the building of a deeper, more trusted Doula-Family relationship, which is really what this is all about.
Centering Topic Nights
Emotions During Birth, Postpartum, & Parenting
Navigating Labor Support + Relaxation Comfort Measures
Postpartum Planning + Navigating
Women's-Only Reflection Night & Partners-Only Reflection Night
Borrowing from the Centering Model of [Obstetric] Care, developed by the Centering Healthcare Institute, four trusted Doulas have created The Birth Doula Centering Model of Care, through which we will provide our collective Doula families group prenatal education and support. Blending the voices, experiences, and questions of several couples can ease nervousness and give the entire group the opportunity to gain knowledge and support from each other. Hearing other couples share concerns that mirror their own helps parents-to-be normalize the whole experience of pregnancy. Participants receive the benefits of individual AND group learning. These sessions are attended by between 2-12 couples who are expecting their first, second, third, or fourth child. Centering is held twice monthly at one central location with a rotating series of 4 topics.
BENEFITS OF CENTERING:
Better health outcomes
Increased self care
Increased self confidence
Support & friendship
Learning & fun
Expanded support for partners
More time with the doula than the conventional model of doula care
The Team Approach
Cultivating Community During the Childbearing Time
Though birth is undeniably and rightly so, a deeply private and intimate event, the prenatal period is a time of great opportunity to re-establish, or build for the very first time, a community of trust and support. The saying, "it takes a village" could never be more true.
