The first time we meet is to get to know each other a little bit so that you can find out more about my work as a doula and you can decide if you would feel comfortable in having me present in such an intimate event. I would like you to tell me what your ideal birth experience would be as well as your needs, expectations and concerns. This interview is free of charge.If you decide to invite me to be your doula, we will schedule a first meeting where we will discuss birthing options in Madrid, who you would like to accompany you when you start going into labour and during the whole process, if you have any fears or concerns and of course anything that you might want to share with me.In our second visit we can talk about the postnatal period and the role of the father before and after the birth. It is important that you tell me what level of participation you would both feel comfortable with so that I can support in a way that works best for the two of you. As I will be there to support you as a family, your partner should not worry about me trying to take his place or made him redundant.
If you like, we can also talk about the things that you might need to buy before your baby is born, the names and brands of the baby products most commonly found in Spain and where to find them.I would pay you a third visit at around week 37. At this point I will explain my role as a doula when you start going into labour.
We could also talk about what a birth plan is and how to formulate one that meets your needs, the things you can take to the hospital or those that might be useful after you baby’s birth.

I will be on-call for you 24hrs a day from weeks 37-42 of your pregnancy and available to join you in your labour as early as you feel the need. I will support you over the phone, offering suggestions on comfort measures until you reach a point where you feel you would like me to join you. I will be there to help you through the dilation stage either at home and/or the hospital. I will help you transfer to the hospital and guide you through the registration process, providing permanent communication with the medical staff as needed as well as support throughout labour and delivery.

If you have other children, I can be with them while you are in labour or take turns with your partner so that he can be with you and with them. My presence will allow him to be wherever he feels comfortable during the whole process and give him time to eat something, take a break, make a phone call, etc without leaving you alone unless that is your request.

In case you have a scheduled C-Section or any labour complication results in one, I will be there to support and assist you with anything you may need. I will help you feed your baby immediately after the operation and make sure that you have everything you need before I leave the hospital.

I also offer 3 hospital/home postnatal visits during the first two weeks to be scheduled after your baby’s birth. In these visits you can share with me any concerns, doubts and fears that you may have and I will listen to how you feel about both the birth and being new parents. I can also support you with feeding, bathing, dressing etc.

I would also be available by telephone and mail during the whole process. Skype video calls could be another option too.
