Liability disclaimer: Doulas would never advice, or diagnose we can help you empower yourself to seek answers and the #1 line is: consult your physician. What can Doulas confirm is normal during pregnancy then? I invite you to accept that pregnancy is a new process in your body and in your life and it will bring about changes.
The most often question I receive starts with "Is it normal that..." and it might be posible for it to be normal, however, the point needs to be turned to readdress the expectation we built about Doulas.Doulas are not qualified to medically examine you. Also your Doula cannot tell you what to feel or classify it, we can point you in a direction to seek answers until you are satisfied. Doulas open an opportunity for you to see beyond and manage to take control of your unique process whether you are pregnant, experiencing a labor stage or recently had a baby;prioritizing your safety and the safety of your baby is our foremost objective. How you would remember this experience is our motto.
Pregnancy is an intense new and real process even for subsequent pregnancies and how you live your pregnancy is subject entirely to your own interpretation and your control over the feelings you may be experiencing. Doulas offer educational, physical and emotional support, all which are non-medical.
