Doula/Birth Coaching

The Perinatal Mental Wellness Center at JL Counseling offers doula/birth coaching services alongside perinatal mental health education classes. 

Jessica Latin, PMH-C, Doula/Professional Birth Coach, is equipped to offer holistic support—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—throughout your pregnancy, during labor and delivery, and postpartum. It's important to note that while doulas provide invaluable support, they are not medical providers and cannot offer medical advice.

 

What does a doula do and what are the benefits?

1. Continuous Support: Doulas offer unwavering emotional, physical, and informational support to individuals during pregnancy, labor, childbirth, and the postpartum period.

2. Increased Comfort: They provide comfort measures, such as massage, positioning suggestions, and relaxation techniques, to ease discomfort during labor.

3. Advocacy and Education: Doulas offer guidance, information, and advocacy, ensuring individuals are well-informed about their choices, empowering them to make informed decisions about their birthing experience.

4. Reduced Stress: Their presence can reduce stress and anxiety for both the birthing individual and their partner by providing reassurance and encouragement throughout the process.

5. Improved Communication: Doulas facilitate communication between the birthing person, their partner, and the medical team, fostering a positive and respectful birthing environment.

6. Labor Progression: Studies suggest that having a doula present during labor may lead to shorter labor durations and lower rates of interventions.

7. Postpartum Support: Doulas offer postpartum assistance, including emotional support, breastfeeding guidance, and help with newborn care, ensuring a smoother transition into parenthood.

8. Partner Involvement: Doulas complement the birthing person's partner by providing guidance and support, empowering them to actively participate in the birthing experience.

These benefits highlight the invaluable role a doula plays in supporting you throughout your childbirth journey.

*Please note that I can not dually practice as a client's therapist AND doula. How we start is how we finish. If I am working as your doula and you are experiencing some mental health concerns it is imperative that you reach out to your own personal mental health provider. A resource list will also be provided.
