Do doulas only support drug free births? In a nutshell no!!
So you want to get an epidural straight away and avoid any pain as much as possible. Well there's nothing wrong with that. So you might be thinking why would I need a doula then?
A doula can help you move into other positions or move you around for better fetal positioning.
A doula can help with pain management techniques before your epidural, during the epidural insertion, and if the epidural doesn't take away all the pain.
A doula provides contiuous support. So that means that your partner can take guilt free breaks.
A doula can help facilitate discussions with care providers. They are a bridge between the medical system and their clients. They help clients formulate questions and make informed choices.
