As birth doulas, we do not:
Perform clinical tasks (such as taking blood pressure, fetal heart checks, or vaginal exams). Harmony doulas are there to provide physical comfort and emotional support and facilitate communication between you and the staff.
Make decisions for you. Harmony doulas will help you get the information you need to make an informed decision. We will also remind you if there is a departure from your birth plan.
Speak to the staff on your behalf. Harmony doulas will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options, as well as encourage you to voice your opinions, questions and concerns to the staff.
