The short answer is simply...yes <3 The longer answer is...yes, because... a doula is still the person who will be able to help you prepare for your birth as best you possibly can. Helping families prepare for the unknown is not new for us. That's always been the job. A doula will calm your fears, help you navigate this rapidly changing landscape, find new classes and resources when you don't know where to look or which is the right one for you, and guide you step-by-step through what you might expect over the coming weeks and months. A doula will still be there to help you through your labor, your birth, and your 4th trimester. Our clients feel prepared, they feel strong, they feel ready for whatever birth brings.
A doula is *still* the best person to help you create a beautiful, peaceful, empowered birth experience for yourself. That is the essence of doula work...and it's something that hasn't changed. We're still here for you, no matter what.
