Dear Dad to be,
I hope you can spare a few minutes to read this letter, as I took the time to write it especially for you.
I'm the Doula who met with your partner few days ago, she was reaching out to me after hearing from few friends how valuable Doula support during labor was for them and what a great difference it made to their own journey.
She looked great (but seemed a little fearfull),she told me how both of you are very happy and excited about this pregnancy but at the same time she mentioned that sometimes it gets a bit challenging for her..
With bright eyes your partner told me about you. she Said that you both make a perfect match for each other , that you are sharing great relationships, and mentioned how great, wonderful and supportive you are and how much you love and care for her .
Than she added:
..as much as I need his support during birth I really want to have a doula with me as well.
I feel that having an experienced supportive woman with me during this experience will definitely help me feel stronger empowered and relaxed. I would love to have some guidance and support throughout this journey .
She came back to you to share her thoughts but...you said NO!
You think it's a waste of money, that having a baby as it is cost a fortune. You reminded her that she has your support anyway so there is no need for someone else to take over your role as her birth partner.
I do understand your worries and concerns
but please let me explain:
Having a baby is a life changing experience for mum,partner and baby!
My role as a Doula is nothing about taking over anyone's role, it's all about providing mum & partner with the knowledge, support guidance and advice that are much needed, and also be another pair of hands that provides comfort and another added soul that shines warming relaxing light to brighten up your your very special experience.
Every baby arriving to this world is a unique once of a lifetime experience...

The smallest touch can make the greatest difference!
Sometimes all it takes is jusr one word, one touch,one person that makes us feel safe and let oxytocin help this magic happen 💫
