I was able to chat with Hannah Wolfe about being a birth doula and her passion. It turns out that Hannah has always been obsessed with childbirth, even as a young child as she would ‘deliver baby dolls’ and read her mom’s pregnancy books. At the young age of 14, she knew her calling in life was to be a birth doula.
Hannah Wolfe Doula Philosphy
Hannah’s philosophy is that women are born with the ability to birth their babies. She wishes for women to be informed and know what they would like their birth to look like – be it at home, at the hospital, medicated or not, surrounded by loved ones or alone with their partner. Every mother is unique and as a birth doula, Hannah is able to provide the support and advocacy to give the mother the kind of experience she most desires.
Hannah loves empowering mothers by creating a peaceful and loving environment for families to grow. She brings to your birthing experience her knowledge, skills, and support during your pregnancy, birth, and even postpartum. She uses massage therapy to relax the mothers with reflexology and pressure points.
Why people choose doulas
“Doulas provide, information, support, comfort measures, encouraging words, the tools to advocate for yourself and the birth you want, but most importantly love! Studies have also shown that births have 25% shorter labor, 60% reduction in epidural requests, 50% reduction in caesarean rate, 40% reduction in forceps delivery, with a doula in attendance.”
Personally, I didn’t have a birth doula when I delivered both my children at Akron General Hospital. I had a good birthing experience but I feel like if I had Hannah by my side, I would have felt more in control, know what to expect, and have an advocate by my side to deal with the medical stuff. I would have enjoyed having a shorter labor for sure and with a 40% chance reduction in forceps delivery maybe my son wouldn’t have been in ICU at Akron Children’s Hospital for 3 days with a head hematoma after his forceps delivery!
