You may have read about or seen in your ultrasound that a baby can be posterior, and that news can sometimes be not exactly what you want to hear. However, our birth doulas are well trained in how to provide physical support prenatally and during birth to help, while also are able to direct you to other resources that may help.
But what exactly do we do in the birth room while you are laboring and pushing? The short answer is: whatever you need!
As you are preparing for labor and delivery, our job as doulas is help you learn about the possibilities that can occur. One of those possibilities is that you experience back labor.
