I became a doula to help give women the support and encouragement that I felt I was lacking when I gave birth. I am a non-medical part of your birth team, whatever that birth team ends up looking like.

Therefore, as your doula there are some things that are out of my scope of practice.

I do not perform clinical tasks such as vaginal exams or fetal heart monitoring
I do not give medical advice or diagnose conditions
I do not judge you for decisions that you make
I do not let my personal values or biases get in the way of caring for you (I will not pressure you into making a decision. I will do my best to provide you with enough info that you feel confident in making the choice for yourself)
I do not take over the role of your husband or partner
