It's been a while since I've posted here. Honestly, I've been pretty overwhelmed by the way the world has turned upside down in the last couple of months. I have struggled to know the best way to respond. Doula work has slowed for many of us, as most hospitals have limited hospital visitors (support people) to just one person. I've fortunately been able to support clients at a home birth and at the one hospital in my county allowing two visitors, and have advertised virtual doula support. But I'm so happy to say that better times are coming to Utah birthing families. And it starts tomorrow!
You can read all the details here, but hospital policy is changing to allow TWO support people (visitors) at all Intermountain Healthcare facilities, so long as they are in good health, complete a screening (answer a series of questions--no long q-tips up the nose!), and meet a few other guidelines.
If you're looking for a doula now that we're able to be back in the hospital with you, Mary Caplin and I would love to set up a free consultation to see if we're a good fit!
