When Birth Calls, Your Doula Dashes


Regardless of the hour, when Emily Pelton, co-owner of Doulas of Baltimore is called to a mom in labor, she whisks away from her family to help.

Pelton, a doula for more than a decade says, “when a woman is in the early stages of labor, she experiences some uncertainty.”

First time moms often worry that they will not know when labor begins. They are concerned that they won’t recognize the signs and symptoms associated with labor and will not know when to go to the hospital. Pelton says, “that’s where a doula comes in.”

What is a doula? A doula is a woman who provides physical, educational and emotional support to women during labor birth and the postpartum period. A doula is hired privately by the parents and exclusively has the birthing couples best interest at heart.

As a veteran doula that has attended the births of over 400 babies, Emily Pelton promises her clients unbiased support and a wealth of knowledge on all things relevant to pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. To find out how you can hire a doula in Baltimore, contact DoB today
