Part of our job as doulas is to help our clients learn about all the options available to them for pregnancy, birth, and as a new parent. One option for birth is to choose a cesarean birth, and while it is not as common as say choosing a water birth or an epidural, it is still an option that is available to those giving birth in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. As always, it is best to check with your specific health care team to determine what type of birth is best for you, your body, and your baby.
During birth, there can be any number of people present for your birth. We decided it was time to break down exactly how doulas, nurses, midwives, and doctors fit into your birth plan and delivery room.
