OHU’s Doulas work with pregnant teens between the ages of 13-19 who reside in the Lake County, IL communities of North Chicago, Gurnee, Waukegan and Zion. Doulas are trained and experienced childbirth coaches who provide physical, emotional and educational support throughout the last trimester of pregnancy, during labor/delivery and for the first two months postpartum.
Research based information includes healthy pregnancy, fetal development, what to expect during labor and delivery including comfort techniques, labor pain management and interventions, as well as breastfeeding, prenatal and postnatal bonding, infant care, and family planning.
Community based Doulas also screen participants for prenatal and postpartum depression, provide links with community resources, and promote continued education.
