Let Birth First Doulas hold the details so your partner can hold the love!
In earlier days when our grandparents were having babies, men weren’t even allowed into the delivery room. But now things have changed - dads have come to play a central role in speaking up for a birthing woman’s needs and coaching her through the birth. This can be an incredibly beautiful thing. It can also be a big job and a lot of pressure. Having a doula can free a partner of their responsibility to both facilitate the birth and coach the mom. This allows them to be present with their own feelings of excitement, joy, or nervousness that are an intrinsic part of becoming a parent.
There are many beautiful ways that dads can support their partners through birth. Words of encouragement, being a strong and steady comfort, back rubs and simply witnessing this profound event are priceless contributions that a birthing person will not forget. However, it is hard seeing the person you love most in the world in pain. And no matter how much he wants to, he cannot take the journey of birth from you. A doula can help him remember the ways he can participate and be productive in his role as a supporter. She can also help him perfect his backrub and anticipate the changes of the next stage of labor when a new backrub will be needed.
A birthing person really needs continuous support. Whether the birth is 5 hours or 25 hours, it is intense and takes focused energy. Even dads that want to be the main supporter need to eat, drink and go to the bathroom. Sometimes they even need to sleep or check-in with anxious grandparents. Having a doula allows dad to take a break when he needs it. It also means that if dad doesn’t want to leave his birthing person’s side that he will be brought food and drink along with the birthing mother.
Although true birth emergencies are rare, sometimes they do happen. If for any reason mom and the baby have to be separated, a doula can stay with the one dad is not with and provide updates to help them stay connected as a family.
There is immense value in having a person there that has supported many women through the same journey. Birth has a wide range of normal. It challenges both moms and dads in new ways. Sometimes the things you thought would be the most helpful are the worst and the things you never thought would help are life-savers. A doula has a toolbox that years of training and experience have brought her. These tools can help reduce mom’s pain, help her focus, and help her do the things that bring baby closer or get into better positions. Even with these tools, the intensity of birth forges an immense intimacy between partners. When birth is easier for the mother, it is easier for the partner as well.
No, studies have shown that doulas can reduce the risk of c-sections, shorten labor, and improve relationships. But, that doesn’t mean that every family has to have a doula. One of the gifts and challenges of birth is learning to understand what you as an individual family need. It is good to spend some time thinking about the needs of your family before you decide to bring a doula into your birth.
