The Duchess of Sussex is getting ready to become a mum for the first time and there’s no doubt she is feeling a little bit nervous ahead of the arrival of Baby Sussex.
The mum is set to give birth to her baby boy or girl at the end of April or beginning of May, so there are only mere months to go until the big day.
It’s obvious that Meghan wants the entire experience to be as stress-free as possible so to help she has reportedly hired a doula as well as a midwife.
A doula is a woman who provides guidance and support to a pregnant woman during labour.
Meghan is a big believer in mindfulness and yoga so it comes as no surprise to hear that she has hired a doula.
Doulas may not be medically trained but they do offer mum a lot of emotional support during and after labour.
Their main mission is to ensure that the mum has a positive experience when she gives birth to her newborn.
Many of us know just how daunting and harrowing an experience it can be, especially for first time mums like Meghan, so the doula will help ease her nerves when her due date arrives.
Doulas do not offer medical advice or perform medical tasks. Their care revolves around the mum’s emotional health.
It was recently reported that Meghan will give birth to her and Harry’s first child at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London.
Meghan will have a team of 20 medical staff, as well as her doula looking after her on the day.
There really isn’t long to go until we meet Baby Sussex. We are so excited for Harry and Meghan.
