Supporting women during childbirth
Sanford Women’s is committed to offering pregnant women and their families the best care imaginable. Our Sanford-trained doulas work alongside doctors, advanced practice providers and nurses to help women navigate the birth process and achieve the healthiest, most satisfying birthing experience. They offer:
- A reassuring presence
- Coaching on breathing
- Education on birth process
- Emotional support and encouragement
- Comfort and distraction techniques
Doulas spend a substantial amount of time with patients – through the entire labor process and up to two hours after delivery. If you are interested, you can sign up for a doula prior to labor or when you arrive at the hospital to deliver.
The cost for this service is not covered by most insurance companies but is covered by some health savings accounts. Please contact your insurance company to discuss your specific coverage.
To learn more or sign up for a doula talk to a birth designer, or contact us at (701) 234-8880.
