HOW A DOULA HELPS

Employee Wellness Packages and Supports

We offer tailored packages for employers to facilitate the provision of our services as part of Employee Assistance Programs and Wellness Initiatives.

Every type of company – from SMEs to large multinationals – are beginning to offer wellness programmes as a part of their overall employee benefits package. Traditionally, workplaces concentrated their resources for workplace health on physical or safety benefits. Today though, the need for initiatives focused around mental health is becoming vital. Research shows that promoting workplace wellness benefits such as physical and mental health has significant benefits for both employers and employees.
We provide workshops for employers on the Antenatal Journey and Preparing for Postpartum. We also offer Birth and Postpartum Support packages. Our Doulas are based throughout the country and we are confident we will be able to match families with a Doula whose personality and skills will be a great fit for their needs.

Research shows that no matter where or how a person gives birth, doulas help make that experience a more positive one. A doula provides physical and emotional support during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. Families can face various challenges during these times.

Research studies have shown that continuous support from doulas during childbirth might be associated with:

  • A decreased use of pain relief medication during labor

  • A decreased incidence of C-sections

  • A decrease in the length of labor

  • A decrease in negative childbirth experiences

Postpartum doulas are trained to understand what new babies – and new parents – truly need. 

Life with a new baby or babies doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Our postpartum doulas help families settle in and feel supported in their parenting choices. Studies show that this kind of support can help in the following ways:

 

  • Help reduce postpartum mood disorders

  • Improve breastfeeding success
