When we here at Erin Stephens Birth Services talk about professionalism, we do so because we believe it can make the difference in your birth.
Doulas haven't always been associated with professionalism.
Thankfully, the profession of doulas has undergone a bit of a shift in recent years toward a more collaborative approach. Here at Erin Stephens Birth Services, we view our role as your doula as being one part of your care team. From your medical provider, to your spouse or significant other, and to your family and friends, we believe our role is to facilitate communication between you and everyone else and to create a positive space in which you can birth.
We don't speak for you to your care provider. We don't save you from your birth. And we absolutely don't save you from your doctor.
You have chosen your provider carefully and you trust them. We support you fully and we want you to be confident in our ability to support your decisions and help you feel confident in your birth choices.
This carries over to your parenting choices as well. As your first choice for a postpartum doula, we commit to helping you develop all the skills you need to accomplish your parenting goals, no matter what they are. We promise to be the best postpartum doula you will find.
We are not invested in what specific choices you may make.
We are invested in you and your family and your unique needs. We are chameleons. We believe that our skills are relevant to every family. We honor your choices and we seamlessly integrate into your family's dynamic.
And that is where professionalism starts for us.
