Emotional Support and Well-Being
BABA Doula Services, Tingley
Julia Kitching is an Antenatal, Birth and Postnatal Doula, living in Tingley. A doula provides continuous support for the whole family through pregnancy, birth and in the early days of parenthood. They are there to listen, give confidence and not judge. They offer flexible practical and emotional support in homes as well as in hospitals. A doula does not carry out a clinical role, but they work alongside midwives and doctors. They support a woman to find balanced information, to make informed decisions about her maternity care. The use of a doula can shorten labour, increase the parental satisfaction with the birth experience, lower the incidence of depression symptoms and increase the likelihood of initiating breastfeeding. A doula cannot guarantee that your birth will go as planned, but having a doula makes it more likely that you will have a positive birth experience.
