Meet britany Bleistein

OF DOULA DFW

Because you can. Because you were beautifully made to birth your baby. Because if you couldn’t or you weren’t, you wouldn’t need me. I am a doula and I am here to empower and remind you that God gave you and your baby all that you need to write your best birth story.

As doulas, we are taught to “meet the mother where she is.” From hospital to home birth, cesarean to vaginal, we want to meet you where you are and provide you with resources and information to make educated choices for your best birth. It’s your story, your experience, your memory. As your birth doula, I would be honored to help you and your partner be your best advocates for your own birth.

 

Between your initial consultation, birth prep prenatal visit with me, hands-on Spinning Babies Parent Class with Spinning Babies Parent Educator Bliss Herron and unlimited phone, text, and email support, you will feel ready and prepared. When baby's birthday arrives, I will be right by your side supporting you and your partner on your big day! Our time together continues after your birth through your first six weeks postpartum for breastfeeding, newborn care, and emotional support. We all need a village after we've had a baby and I would love to be a part of yours!

Ready to set up your FREE consultation to meet me? I am!

WHY hire a doula?
We are right by your side... always.
 

The most important thing a woman needs during labor is continuous support. This means that you have someone by your side continuously from start to finish. A doula never leaves your side. Other than you, nurses have many other responsibilites. The nurse is communicating with your care provider, taking care of other patients, documenting care, taking breaks, and taking care of other important tasks. Unfortunately, a nurse’s support ends when her shift does. As your doula, I only have one obligation the whole time—and that is YOU!

what's the evidence on doulas?

Don't deny the facts.

 

A doula as your support companion has a significant impact on your health and safety during labor and birth. Compared with women who have no support in labor, women who have support from a companion who is neither a member of the hospital staff nor a friend or family member are:

 

• 28% less likely to have a cesarean section

• 31% less likely to use Pitocin to speed labor, which often leads to other medical interventions

• 34% less likely to rate their childbirth experience negatively
