Feel prepared for anything

Dear Mumma, you’ve been through a lot and you’re in a country where things are a little different. Battling bouts of nausea, navigating the rollercoaster of emotions, and constantly having people gravitate towards your belly. Amidst the excitement and preparations, there’s an undeniable hint of fear and a feeling of unreadiness for the impending birth journey.

It seems you’ve done everything you can; purchased a birthing sling for labour and devoted countless hours to finding the perfect breast pump and baby sling carriers. Yet, despite these efforts, you’re still anxious about the birthing process and becoming a mumma. Not to mention figuring out what your options are for birth support in Bali.

Frequently asked Doula questions​

Everything you need to know before hiring a doula Bali.

The cost can seem daunting, but it’s an investment in a supportive and empowering birth experience. Birth and postpartum doulas, especially those trained in specific approaches like gentle birth or Lamaze, bring a wealth of knowledge and skills. They help you feel empowered, offering personalised support that often extends beyond what a midwife, nurse or medical practitioner can provide.

Consider the benefits: reduced stress, help with breastfeeding, and guidance through the postnatal period, not to mention reduced maternal mortality rates. Many offer flexible payment plans or sliding scales to accommodate different budgets. Investing in one can lead to a more positive and satisfying experience for birthing families.

Having a doula can have a phenomenal impact on your birth. Research shows that the presence of a doula can lead to shorter labour, fewer interventions, and more positive maternal health outcomes.

Childbirth educators offer continuous support, focusing on your emotional well-being. They assist with breathing techniques, positions, and comfort measures. A doula acts as an advocate, ensuring your birth plan is respected and facilitating communication with medical staff.

A doula’s role is to support and respect your birthing choices, mainstream or not. During prenatal consultations, which could include discussions on gentle birth or specific cultural practices, you can express your preferences and concerns.

It’s important to find someone, ideally certified by a reputable organisation like DONA International, who aligns with your values and respects your decisions. A good doula offers unbiased support and guidance, ensuring your journey reflects your wishes.

A good doula, works to support not just you but also your partner and family members. Involving your loved ones in the conversation helps the doula understand the dynamics and how best to support everyone. They will foster a collaborative environment, enhancing the support provided by your loved ones rather than overshadowing it.

When considering a doula, it’s essential to find someone who values your privacy and personal space. In prenatal meetings, openly discuss your concerns about privacy. Look for someone who has completed doula training programs that emphasize sensitivity to personal boundaries.

A doula, particularly those experienced in birthing practices in diverse cultures like Jakarta or Ubud in Bali, understands the importance of creating a respectful and confidential environment. Whether it’s a home birth or in a birthing lodge, your doula should make you feel secure and respected in your private space.

To ensure a doula’s methods align with your birth plan, discuss your preferences for evidence-based practices versus alternative approaches during your initial consultation. A doula with comprehensive training, possibly including certifications in gentle birth, yoga for childbirth or is a certified lactation consultant, will be knowledgeable in both areas.

Ask about their experience with different birthing techniques, from water birth in tranquil settings like Bali to more medicalised childbirth in a hospital. Their ability to blend various practices, such as using massage for pain relief or lactation consultation for breastfeeding, can really help have a positive expereince.

To find a doula who understands your unique needs, consider their background, training, and personal approach. Look for someone who have participated in diverse training programs, perhaps in locations like Indonesia, where they might have been exposed to different cultural birthing practices. Discuss your specific needs, be it related to cultural customs, language, or personal birthing desires.

A doula with personal experience in supporting women of color or specific communities may offer the empathetic understanding you seek. Their ability to connect on a personal level, informed by their own journey towards becoming a certified doula, can be pivotal in creating a supportive birthing environment.

To ensure your doula’s availability, especially for an unexpected labor, discuss and agree on an on-call plan. This plan should include their on-call period around your due date and their policy for early or late births. Inquire about their backup arrangements, which might involve another certified birth doula or a postpartum doula from their network.

Doulas who have trained in comprehensive programs, possibly including retreats or workshops in places like Ubud or Bali, often have a wide network they can call upon. A clear understanding of these plans can give you peace of mind as your due date approaches.

The emotional support from a doula during childbirth can be profound. A doula, trained in childbirth education and perhaps with additional skills like childbirth educator, breastfeeding peer counselor or massage therapy, offers continuous reassurance, comfort, and encouragement.

They can help navigate the emotional highs and lows of labor, using techniques to calm the mind and ease anxiety. They’re there to listen, provide a comforting presence, and advocate for your needs. This support can be particularly empowering for many mothers having their first baby or those who have had previous challenging birth experiences.

To ensure your doula aligns with your birth plan and not their own agenda, have open and honest discussions about your expectations and preferences from the start.

A good doula will listen to your needs, respect your choices, and tailor their support to your birth plan. They should provide information and guidance without imposing their beliefs, empowering you to make informed decisions about your childbirth. A doula’s role is to support your journey, ensuring your voice and choices lead the way.
