We were encouraged by our certifying organization to write a poem about what does a doula do. We hope you enjoy our attempt at lyrical musicality.
What does a doula do?
We are not advocates.
We will not speak on your behalf.
You have a voice we won’t surpass.
We are doulas with a job to do.
And that job is supporting you.
Through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum we are there
Addressing each and every care
Concern and worry you might express
Without bias, judgement, added stress.
After baby has arrived
We’ll help you do more than survive
Our postpartum doulas will help your new family
settle in amiably.
So what does a doula do?
Everything we can to fully support you.
