Meet the Doula: Lindsay

Posted on October 3, 2012 at 4:43 AM
Lindsay Brereton has been a doula for two years, and she has attended 16 births.  As a mom of 3 children who have three completely different birth stories, she has a lot of experience to draw from to help you have your best birth possible.  While she is based out of Cottonwood, Arizona, she has served women at FMC, YRMC, Chandler Regional, St. Joe's, Phoenix Baptist,and Scottsdale Shea.
 

When was the first time you heard the word, “doula”?
After my first child was born, I started looking into ANY and EVERY way to have a better birth next time. When I found out what a doula was and did, I HAD to have one for my next birth. Jennifer Hoeprich was my doula for my VBAC girl.
 
How did you decide that becoming a doula was part of your journey?
 After my VBAC, Jen and I were talking about the experience. She told me that I should become a doula because I knew so much and had experienced such different births.
 
Are you a birth and/or a postpartum doula?
I am trained as a birth doula, but do postpartum work as well.
 
How long have you been a doula?
I am trained with Blessed Expectations Birth Services (Sally Stevens) for 2 1/2 years and will be DONA certified by the end of 2012.
 
What do you enjoy the most about being a doula?
 Watching a mama and papa discover themselves and empower themselves into parenthood. And also the precious babies of course!
 
What is your philosophy when you go to a birth space?
It is holy ground. I listen, watch and sense what the mama needs at that time.
 
How do you work with and involve the Coach?
I give them space to see how they themselves want to fit into the labor room. I also gently encourage them to talk and touch the mama as they feel comfortable. I give the mama and papa space to be alone if they need it.
 
What is the toughest situation you have ever dealt with? How did you handle it?
 The hierarchy of nurses. The toughest situation was over using an ice pack on a mamas back. One nurse said yes, other nurse said no. So we used cold 1/2 cans of soda instead. Not really a “tough” situation per say, but it was in it's own way.
 
What keeps you working as a doula?
 I adore this job! I adore the families that I work with and I love the rush that comes from being on call.
 
What does your fee cover – how many visits or hours? Is there a different charge for a shorter labor or longer labor?
$350 covers 2-3 prenatal visits, continuous labor support (no matter the length of labor) and 1 postpartum visit. I have 4 backup doulas.
 
Do you offer any other services to your clients?
Belly casting.
 
Just for fun, what do you do when you are not doula-ing?
I like to read, hike, camp, and travel.
