Doulas are often mistakenly thought as just an ultimate crunchy home birth accessory, but I do not know how I would have navigated the medical system without you. Even from the early days of pregnancy, in a whirlwind of rotating nurses, doctors, and midwives, you were a constant.
You’re having a baby! And there are about a million questions swarming through your head…what will the nursery have in it? Should I use a family name? Where should I deliver? Will I go early or late?
But there’s one question that many parents ask themselves in pregnancy which comes detached from all that decision-making and worries, and that’s: “what will my baby look like!?" It’s so much fun imaging what your baby will look like. Will they take after mom or dad? What color will their eyes be?
When I was pregnant, I had it all planned out. We would have the baby, come home, and my husband and I would nest around our house for 2 weeks, snuggling our baby, until he returned to work. Then, it would be just me and my baby, hunkered down in heaven, bonding, breastfeeding, and snuggling 24/7. Minimal guests. Minimal family. I wanted it to be just us.
My visions quickly shattered upon returning home.
The experience a family goes through during pregnancy, childbirth and into the postpartum phase of parenthood can be a stressful time.
To help alleviate some of the pressures of this process, High Country Doulas aims to provide support, comfort, and education to its clients in Northwestern North Carolina, Eastern Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. HCD co-owner Samantha Wright explained that a doula is a person who supports families during this time by focusing on a person’s emotional health and helping families feel empowered and cared for.
