Satheara Teeuwen

-Birth Doula-

Hi! I'm Satheara,

a DONA trained doula committed to helping birthing people and their support team create the most positive birthing experience possible. As your birth doula, I will support you and your supportpartner physically, emotionally, and without judgement. I will help educate and prep you so that you go into birth feeling safe, strong, and empowered. Together we can create a beautiful birth experience!

The Benefits of Having a Doula

As a birth doula, I offer continuous emotional and physical support to you and your partner during labor and the immediate postpartum period. I offer education during your pregnancy so that you walk into the birth room knowing exactly what can happen. Being prepared and knowing what to expect will allow you and your support person/team to feel empowered in the birthing room.
Research has found that compared with birthing people who had no continuous support, people with companions (such as a doula) who were neither on the hospital staff nor in the woman’s social network were:
› 28% less likely to have a cesarean section
› 31% less likely to use synthetic oxytocin to speed up labor
› 9% less likely to use any pain medication
› 34% less likely to rate their childbirth experience negatively

Covid-19 Considerations

Due to Covid-19, at least one prenatal and your postpartum meetings will take place virtually. If desired, we can meet in-person for one of your prenatal sessions so that I can teach your support person how to perform comfort measures. This session can also be done virtually with me coaching you and your support person verbally.
Depending on the hospital you have chosen to give birth at, you may have to choose between your support person or your doula. If I am not unable to be in the labor and delivery room with you I will help you labor in your home until it is time to go to the hospital. Even once we have to part ways, I will be available to you virtually via Zoom or FaceTime to help coach you and your support person. If you are having a home birth or are somewhere that is allowing doulas, I will be with you throughout your labor and birth.
I will be following all Covid-19 precautions including wearing a mask in public, washing hands frequently, practicing social distancing, and limiting social interactions with those outside of my household. I do this to help keep you and others safe and I ask that you do the same to help keep me safe.
