Antepartum Doula

San Diego Antepartum Doulas imageIf your on bed rest, experiencing a difficult pregnancy, or just need help before the baby has arrived then you want an antepartum Doula. Antepartum Doulas are a newer kind of Doula, specializing in supporting women going through a high-risk or difficult pregnancy. They support their clients in a number of ways.

If a woman is on bed rest, an Antepartum Doula can help much like a Postpartum Doula helps a new mother – cooking meals, light housework, helping the mother organize things for the new baby, and, most importantly, providing emotional and informational support.
