Metro-Detroit's Best Labor and Postpartum Doulas: Doulas, Not Just for the "Crunchy Moms."

In the Metro-Detroit area the word "doula" has been a word more often found on the lips of the more "crunchy" parents. If you're not familiar with the term "crunchy" means then urban dictionary is a great resource:) 

Crunchy Mom: A member of an increasingly growing group of moms who are neo-hippies. They generally believe (for varying reasons) that there is something bad or less beneficial about buying mainstream products or doing other common activities in the mainstream way.   -UrbanDictionary.com

But lately having a doula attend a couples birth is becoming more and more mainstream. As an agency we have served couples from the more "crunchy mom" type all the way to professionals like lawyers, doctors, local business owners, and everyone in-between!

The great thing about Motor City Birth Services is that we aren't for just one specific group of people.

We love supporting the super crunchy, the mainstream, and the old-school parenting styles through our postpartum care.

We cheer on the unmedicated births just as much as the planned cesarean moms! 

We fully believe that you have every right to birth your baby in the environment that makes you feel most comfortable. And it's our job to help you discover what that is and how to make it happen. 

From the moment you meet with us we learn about your previous experiences with birth, what you're hoping to achieve within your birthing environment, and how you feel you can make that happen. We have quite a few tricks up our sleeve and plenty of experience to share with you. Together, we can make your birthing day exactly how you and your partner have envisioned it. 

All of us here at Motor City Birth Services come from different backgrounds which is a great added bonus! We all have had the joy of bringing our little ones into the world and experienced becoming a mother, and we've all done it differently. From completely medication free, epidural, water birth, birth center, hospital birth, induction, and cesarean! 

We all support the idea that what is most important is that our clients feel comfortable about their experience and that we were able to help make it possible. Sometimes it's just knowing you have that team standing behind you that makes all the difference. 

If you're looking for professional and unbiased support for your birth or your postpartum transition time consider speaking with us. We are always available to talk out your options and provide you with support!
