As a Doula, I Do Not:
Perform any clinical tasks
The primary role of a traditional doula is holistic, and provides mother and baby with spiritual, emotional and physical guidance and well being. At abiyamo, we are prepared to take basic vital signs, and support the baby's transition into the world. We do not perform surgery.
Make decisions for you
It's all about you. While we are here as a present support, the decisions you make during pregnancy and childbirth is strictly up to you. We are here if you need us, and completely understand when it is time for us to go.
Speak to the staff on your behalf
We do not intervene on your behalf with medical staff. The role of a doula is that of a birthing assistant only.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
The Yoruba are a people with ancient history dating before the 7th century BCE. Our history, culture, language and spiritual practices are rooted in the being's oneness with nature. No need to convert you. You are beautiful exactly as you are. The vision of abiyamo is to provide traditional child bearing services and advocacy rooted in a holistic model of mental, physical and spiritual well being.
