Doulas are for partners too!

Did you know doulas support dads, partners, and the whole family, in addition to the person giving birth? Red Tree Birth clients were interviewed for this Parents.com article. Read what these partners had to say about doula services.

Kathryn listened to my feelings, thoughts, and needs and adapted her support. She also did a great job keeping my husband involved. She coached him on breathing exercises and stretches for me. She gave him positive reinforcement and reminded him about things he could do to support me. The coaching and support greatly reduced my anxiety about the birthing process and made me feel confident about the choices I was making. Kathryn’s calm presence, positive attitude and the wealth of information and research she provided really stood out. I found so much value in the constant verbal support and coaching. I didn’t have to ask for help or support, she just provided it. I really loved my experience with her. Kathryn helped me get through childbirth with minimal anxiety and/or fear. It was very comforting to know that she was there to answer questions and provide advice. My husband also really appreciated having her there. He wasn’t completely confident about how to support me best and having her there to coach him and provide suggestions was very important to him. After the whole experience was over, my husband said, “I would hire Kathryn again in a heartbeat. She was excellent!” We feel like our money was very well spent. The support provided during the process was well worth it. We would definitely consider hiring Kathryn again when/if have another child. Doris ~ Concord, CA
