Preparing for Birth: Birth Support

Welcome to the fourth week in our 10 week series on Preparing for Birth! This week’s focus is on Birth Support. This is timely for me as we just made the sort of last minute decision (at 30 something weeks pregnant) to hire a doula to support us during my upcoming birth.

I’ll be sharing some of what into that decision later this week. I also have a guest post here on the blog from Carolina Doulas on what a doula does you can read if you are wondering what in the world a doula even is.

Along with my thoughts on birth support later this week, here are posts from other bloggers on the topic:

Be on the lookout later this week for a guest post from Code Name: Mama on an excellent technique your birth partner can use during labor.That Mama Gretchen and Parenting God’s Children are also writing on birth support on their blogs this week. I’ll do a recap at the end of the week about their posts.
