ANSWER: “Doulas absolutely support the partner. In fact, if there is a partner who wants to be actively involved in the birth, that is a doula’s job, is to support the partner with suggestions and getting them water, making sure they’re getting snacks, giving, you know, helping them find the right area to provide pressure, reminding them that everything is okay. Making sure that they understand the things that are happening as well. We sometimes forget how important the partner is during the birth process and as a doula, that is what we’re there for.”
