A birth doula can play an essential role in assisting one's surrogate mother prior to and during a natural childbirth. Not only is she trained to offer specialized support during labor to provide guidance and help the surrrogate mother remain calm and focused during childbirth, she can also be instrumental in bridging communication gaps between the recipient parent and surrogate mother both prior to and during childbirth. Doula's are trained as experts in the childbirth process, and can provide the surrogate with specific techniques to ensure that the surrogate mother is as relaxed as possible during childbirth, and also foster the creation of a birth plan prior to childbirth which can be generated with input from the recipient parents as well. On this episode, our guest is S. Renea Capozzi, a birth doula who owns Lil' Seeds of Life Birth Wellness Center in southern California, who will discuss the doula's role in a surrogacy birth, as well as offer insights on natural childbirth.
There are so many reasons why peole dream of becoming a doula! And for many, the fear of whether they will make a "good" doula holds them back from taking that first step toward living their passions. Some of the many fears include:
* My family counts on me, how can I be gone for many hours at a time to a birth?
* I haven't had children, will anyone hire me if they feel I don't have first hand birth experience?
* I'm too young (I'm too old).
* I already have a full time job, will birth work be able to support my current income?
* What is life on call really like?
We are going to talk about all the reasons why people choose to take our training workshops, but also, what makes a good doula. Would you make a good doula? Have a listen and let's find out if you are a good fit for this life!
poems, words to inspire and the enthusiasm of new doula Cat LaPlante. We frame a quick dialogue with resources from the Annie E. Casey Foundation on children's poverty and the deep hope of peace from Jean Shinola Bolen.
What are birth doulas and how can a doula be part of your journey to birth? How do doulas hold the space for labor and life?
Jeanice Barcelo, M.A., is a birth doula and independent childbirth educator, specializing in the prevention and healing of birth trauma. She is an international speaker, TV and radio show host, and founder of the forthcoming "Birth of a New Earth Preparatory School for Conscious Procreation." Jeanice has been an independent childbirth educator for the past 7 years, offering educational seminars and teacher trainings.
During this show we discuss the disturbing aspects of standard baby delivery protocols and procedures within hospitals. Jeanice will talk about the pain and torture that a baby endures during the birthing process as well as the interference that occurs between baby/parent bonding. Many unnecessary and insane procedures are now commonly acceptable during the birthing process. Where did this begin and why?
Later in the VAULT, Jeanice talks about mysterious discarding of "medical waste" of umbilical cord blood and placenta in the hospitals.
