My rights and responsibilities as a postpartum doula
As a postpartum doula and I have completed 2 pieces of doula trainings plus I am continuously learning and educating myself though ongoing professional development.
The role of a doula is to provide emotional and practical support to families when a baby is born. In order to empower new parents in their choices, a postpartum doula may provide evidence-based information regarding birth rights, womens health, both physical and mental, basic baby care and normal, basic breastfeeding. A postpartum doula will always make referrals where appropriate and never gives unsolicited advice. I take lots of care and consideration to provide valuable information but I cannot be responsible for the use that you make of that information. Please be aware that the information I provide is generalised and is not a substitute for specialist advice. No professional relationship is formed between us unless you explicitly choose to work with me by purchasing my services or products.
