Happy World Doula Week!

Happy World Doula Week 2015!

What is World Doula Week?

World Doula Week is a worldwide celebration of the work of doulas, as well as an opportunity to spread the word about the incredible benefits of all types of doulas.

World Doula Week

Are there different types of doulas?

More and more people are becoming familiar with labor or birth doulas, who assist women during pregnancy and childbirth, but there are actually many other kinds of doulas, including:
  • Antepartum Doulas - These professionals offer support during pregnancy when mothers encounter bedrest, preterm labor and have other needs for specialized support and assistance during pregnancy.
  • Postpartum Doulas - These professionals offer support during the postpartum period and help ease the family's transition into parenting.
I love being a doula!

I am so thankful to have the opportunity to work as a doula with Tulsa Family Doulas and teaching childbirth classes in Tulsa. Since 2007, I have been supporting mothers and their families as a labor doula and have just recently gotten training as a Postpartum Doula through ProDoula. I celebrate being a doula every day of the year, but I'm especially grateful for a whole week where people are talking about the benefits of doula support all over the world! 

Celebrate with me! 

Would you like to join the celebration? Here are some things you can do to celebrate World Doula Week with me:

Chubby shape is not good for any new mommy it will be very painful after giving birth, after giving birth the every mommy is losing their body shape and looks abnormal with their body. The postpartum-griddle is use for maintain the shape of your body after pregnancy and it can be used during pregnancy for looking in shape and you can wear every dress that you like and you will look smart on it after wearing this postpartum-griddle, if you want to know more about this you can check my blog.
