With Harp & Sword and Doula Self-Care Sheet

WH&S.jpeg
 

Doulas are in a unique position to build genuine, meaningful relationships with survivors of abuse or assault during a time in their lives when they are extremely vulnerable to what’s happening with and to their bodies. 

Oftentimes, doulas come to share a deep connection with their clients which can decrease isolation and stigma for survivors, attest to the value of their lived experiences and validate that they are worth being cared for.  

Kenya wrote With Harp & Sword: A Doula’s Guide to Providing Trauma-Informed Birth Support to build a greater understanding of the lifelong impact of interpersonal violence in women’s lives, to discuss trauma-informed care as part of birth support and to offer strategies to enhance the doula practice.

With Harp & Sword is a thorough guide on trauma-informed birth support that offers thoughtful and smart strategies to doulas for helping survivor moms take control in a situation where they may feel extraordinarily vulnerable and out of control.
— Licensed Mental Health Counselor
