If you are facing a pregnancy loss you are not alone. The team of doulas at BirthWaves want you to know that this is a journey that you do not have to travel alone. A loss during any week of your pregnancy deserves to be validated.
Our doulas are trained in all aspects of pregnancy and infant loss. If you have just received news that your baby is incompatible with life, you are already experiencing the early signs of miscarriage, or you are having to make the decision to terminate the pregnancy, we can help.
If you have just received the news that your baby will be born sleeping or will not live longer than a few moments after birth, we are so sorry. You are probably feeling a lot of different emotions right now, or maybe you’re not feeling anything. Both are normal and neither is wrong.
You do not have to go through this alone. We will meet with you before your birth and together we will talk about your baby, your birth, your options and what comes next. When labor begins, a member from your hand selected doula team will join you and your partner at the birth. You and your baby will be treated with the kindness and dignity that you both deserve. Your doula will stay after the birth for up to two hours while you recover from birth and bond with your baby.
Birth is not the end of your journey. The doulas at BirthWaves know that when everyone around you seems to settle back into their old routine you are just beginning to adjust to the new world around you.
