Negotiating is a way of getting what you want without aggravating your opponent OR to try to reach an agreement by discussion! Pregnant women and their partners are not able to do this for themselves, during their pregnancy, labour or birthing. Why? because they do not understand the hospital system – our very broken system, where the majority of women choose to birth. A well trained doula has this expertise. I believe it is the key to a woman having a beautiful birthing experience. It is not possible to fully explain to a pregnant couple just how much manipulation the institution called a ‘hospital’, can push onto them, when it comes to making important decisions about them and their baby. It usually comes in the form of very powerful suggestions that leaves them with no choice. A doula provides the calm and the balance, offering honest information and support. This wonderful work is truly so rewarding it makes the sleep deprivation worth while! Check out our doula training and know you will be making a real difference to the beginning of life.
