Hello! 

Thank you so much to the Mums NI Team for having us hang about the place today. 

Hopefully we can squeeze in a little bit of everything that we do at Belfast Baby Co. 

Belfast Baby Co. is not just about doula support - if you can message us or comment here with a list of 10 different things that we offer by the end of today’s takeover, we will enter you into a draw for a free crafty session or a 2 hour ZoomChat birth preparation (will tell you more about those too). 

To kick off here is a little intro to our doulas Emma and Leslie:

I suppose one of the obvious questions is - what is a doula? 

Google will explain it as: 

“A woman, typically without formal obstetric training, who is employed to provide guidance and support to a pregnant woman during labour. Or a woman employed to provide guidance and support to the mother of a newborn baby.”

When it comes to birth specifically is it important to remember doulas are not medically trained - they don't deliver babies, replace a doctor or a midwife, or play the role of a nurse. We are there to support you and your partner/family through gathering information to make decisions, giving you space and time where you need it, explaining what is going on if things become overwhelming, physical support including massage and finding comfortable positions, and using the right pain relief options at the right time for you. 

Here is our picture explanation that gives a brief overview:

Hypnobirthing is a big part of the birth world now, and for good reason. It has lots of evidence behind it and is closely linked with sports psychology research - but why bother? 

Hypnobirthing can:

  • Make labour and birth easier 
  • Support the hormonal processes of birth
  • Be used in induction, caesarean, homebirth, and even after birth to help bring some calm into life with a newborn

Check out our blog “Does labour have to be painful”

What is written on your birth plan doesn’t matter

It is how you came to those decisions that is the most important part. 

Understanding your options, and thinking about them in advance ensures that you can make a more informed choice during the birth. 

We LOVE birth preferences work with families; they can give a woman and her partner so much confidence in their own knowledge and abilities. They are not just for first babies, or just for a vaginal birth - every birth is different, and the circumstances leading up to every birth is different. In a 2-3 hour birth preferences session we can cover all of these.

BabyCo offer of the month:

What is Rewind? And why is it important. 

With traumatic birth experiences seemingly on the rise, and parents struggling to move past the strong emotions attached to a birth or breastfeeding experience that was traumatic to them Rewind can offer the first step in dealing with these experiences.
