Statistics about Doula Support

Research indicates that individuals who have a doula present during labor tend to have shorter labors compared to those who do not. Studies have also shown individuals are less likely to have a cesarean section with Doula care.

Doula-supported individuals are less likely to request pain medication or epidurals during labor and ​report higher levels of satisfaction with their birth experience, regardless of the outcome.

In the postpartum period, individuals who receive doula support are more likely to initiate breastfeeding and have successful breastfeeding experiences as well as experience lower rates of postpartum depression in the weeks and months following birth.

kind words

Michala's expertise and unwavering support as my labor doula were absolutely invaluable. Throughout my labor, Michala's calming presence, encouragement, and knowledgeable guidance helped me navigate each contraction with confidence and strength. She intuitively knew exactly what I needed, whether it was a comforting touch, a reassuring word, or a suggestion for a position to ease discomfort. I cannot recommend Michala highly enough to anyone seeking a compassionate and skilled labor doula. She truly made all the difference in my birthing experience.

  • At Rooted, what training and certifications have you obtained?
    At Rooted Birth Collective, we uphold the highest standards of professionalism and expertise in our field. With three prestigious certifications—Placenta Preparation Specialist Certification, Peer Lactation Certification, and Holistic Doula & Birthkeepers—we are equipped with the knowledge and skills to provide exceptional care to our clients.

    At Rooted Birth Collective, we strive to provide the highest quality of service to our clients. Due to the nature of our services, we do not offer refunds. However, if you have any issues or concerns with our services, please reach out to us. We will do our best to address your concerns and, if necessary, offer additional time or services to ensure your satisfaction. Your happiness and confidence in our services are our top priorities. We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise during childbirth, and some doulas may have a strict "no fault" policy if they are unable to attend due to birthing circumstances. However, at Rooted Birth Collective, we prioritize creating a supportive and stress-free environment for your birthing experience. While we will make every effort to avoid such situations, if circumstances arise that prevent us from attending your birth, we will offer postpartum services free of charge to continue supporting you during this important time. Your well-being and satisfaction are our utmost priority, and we are committed to being a positive presence throughout your birthing journey.
  • What is placenta encapsulation, and what are its benefits?
    Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the placenta for consumption in capsule form. Many people believe that consuming placenta capsules can help balance hormones, increase energy levels, support postpartum recovery, and enhance milk supply.
  • How many placenta pills will I receive?
    The number of placenta pills produced can vary depending on the size of the placenta, but on average, it typically yields between 80 to 160 pills.
  • What are the sterile measures that take place during placenta encapsulation?
    We are trained placenta preparation professionals. We have completed an OSHA-approved Blood Borne Pathogen & Infection Control Training and hold Texas Food Handler's Certifications. The preparation area will be thoroughly disinfected prior to placenta processing, and all supplies will be sterilized before use.
  • What will my placenta come packaged in?
    Your placenta capsules will come in an air-tight, food-safe container.
  • How do I prepare my placenta for transport?
    If birthing in the hospital, your care team should be able to provide you with a plastic container to hold your placenta. Otherwise we suggest simply using a double bagging method with traditional ziploc bags. PLEASE NOTE: Your placenta should be refrigerated, or put on ice, when possible; and should not be at room temperature for more than a few hours. Additionally, if the placenta can not be transported within 24 hours of delivery, we recommend moving the placenta to the freezer.
  • How long will it take to get my encapsulated placenta returned to me?
    We guarantee your processed placenta within the first week postpartum, however the typical turn around time is 2-3 days.
  • Are there times where my placenta can not be used?
    There are certain circumstances where a placenta may not be suitable for encapsulation, such as if there are signs of infection during labor and delivery (chorioamnionitis), if the mother knowingly utilized drugs during the pregnancy, if the placenta was not handled or stored properly, or if there are any abnormalities or concerns identified during examination.
  • What happens if I pay for placenta services and the placenta is not able to be used?
    Our approach is to assess each situation here individually. Typically if the placenta is deemed non-consumable, due to circumstances outside of your control, we will do our best to either provide a refund or offer an alternative service. However refunds will not be provided for issues that resulted from client error or negligence.
  • What is a doula, and how can they support me during labor and birth?
    A doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, physical, and informational support to birthing individuals and their families before, during, and after childbirth. Doulas offer continuous support throughout labor, helping to alleviate discomfort, provide encouragement, and advocate for your birth preferences.
  • What are the benefits of hiring a doula for my birth?
    Research has shown that having a doula present during labor and birth can lead to shorter labors, reduced risk of medical interventions, increased satisfaction with the birth experience, and improved outcomes for both birthing individuals and babies.
  • How do I know if I need postpartum doula support?
    Postpartum doula support can be beneficial for any family adjusting to life with a new baby. Whether you need assistance with newborn care, breastfeeding support, household tasks, or emotional guidance, a postpartum doula can provide invaluable support during this transitional time.
  • What qualifications do the doulas at Rooted Birth Collective have?
    Our doulas at Rooted Birth Collective are H.E.R.B.A.L. trained doulas, certified in placenta preparation, and hold peer lactation certification. Additionally, we are CPR first aid certified, bring over a decade of personal experience as mothers, and are student midwives.
  • When should I hire a doula?
    It's recommended to hire a doula as early as possible in your pregnancy to ensure you have ample time to establish a relationship and benefit from their support throughout your pregnancy, labor, and postpartum period.
  • Can I meet with the doulas at Rooted Birth Collective before hiring them?
    Yes, absolutely! Rooted Birth Collective offers complimentary consultations for all prospective clients. This gives you the opportunity to meet with our doulas, ask questions, and determine if our services are the right fit for your needs and preferences.
  • Is doula support covered by insurance?
    While some insurance plans may cover doula services, coverage varies widely. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to inquire about potential coverage options for doula support. Please Note: We have all felt financial burden at one point or another. Reach out to us. Let's get to know one another first and then if you have any true financial concerns, we can figure it out together.
  • What is Night Respite?
    Night respite is a service provided by trained caregivers who support parents by caring for their baby during the overnight hours, allowing parents to get uninterrupted rest.
  • Who can benefit from night respite services?
    Night respite services are beneficial for new parents who may be experiencing sleep deprivation and exhaustion due to caring for a newborn during the night.
  • What does a Newborn Specialist do during Night Respite?
    A night respite newborn specialist tends to the baby's needs during the night, including feeding, diaper changes, soothing, and comforting, allowing parents to get much-needed sleep.
  • Is night respite only for breastfeeding mothers?
    No, night respite services can be beneficial for all parents, regardless of their feeding method. Caregivers can assist with bottle feeding, breastfeeding, or any other feeding preferences.
  • How do I schedule night respite services?
    To schedule night respite services, simply contact us and inquire about availability. We will work with you to create a schedule that meets your needs.
