It's so important to have a good reliable back-up Doula in the rare event that your primary Doula is unable to attend. I have never encountered this in my Doula career so far but I like to be prepared. Rachael Koekoek is a CAPPA certified Labour and Post Partum Doula and mother of two. She was MY Doula when I had my third baby, so that goes to show the amount of trust and admiration I have for Rachael. As a Labour Doula she provides physical, emotional and informational support to mothers and their families during pregnancy, labour and birth. As a Postpartum Doula she provides support to mothers and their families in the days, weeks and/or months following the birth of their child by helping with things such as meal prep, grocery shopping, running errands, helping care for the baby so that the mother can rest, helping care for older children, laundry, light housekeeping, emotional support/reassurance and much more.
