What is a Pelvic Health Doula?

Prior to scheduling a pelvic surgery, pelvic health doulas meet with their clients to craft a selection of services that fit their goals for recovery including:

  • pre and post-visits with a pelvic health therapist
  • weekly fitness routine with a personal trainer
  • nutrition plan with a pelvic health dietitian
  • sleep hygiene schedule and preparation for surgery
  • wellness check-in with a mental health therapist
  • financial planning with an accountant for time off of work and care costs
  • support system for household cleaning, organization, meal train, and childcare services
  • and all of this coordinated by a pelvic health doula on behalf of their clients!

Doulas have perfected the field of health consulting, expanding their services as fertility doulas, postpartum doulas, and even as death doulas. In the birthing community, doulas are adept at coordinating care and support services from pre-conception up to the first year after birth.

For individuals preparing for pelvic surgery like a hysterectomy or prostatectomy, imagine a pelvic health doula providing 1:1 support and a roadmap for recovery before and immediately after surgery, without a long waiting list.

These professionals provide information to their clients that they would otherwise have to find themselves in order to ask specific questions to their medical team. Pelvic health doulas act as personal assistants, empowering individuals with resources that challenge the status quo of people figuring it out on their own.

Pelvic surgeries continue to rise, and there is a greater need for a robust support team that understands the multi-dimensions of recovery and support that helps people thrive after a tremendous change in their function and routine. 

Similar to birth support, pelvic health doulas can shorten the recovery time after a hysterectomy, cesarean section, prolapse repair, or other uterine surgery.

A pelvic health doula, or a pelvic health consultant, works wherever their clients are, inside the hospital or in the home, to help them achieve a successful recovery by addressing needs early on after surgery or birth.

Systems of fragmented care are no longer acceptable and neither are the lack of services that leave people needlessly without support and specific information that is needed to recover after birth and pelvic surgery. 

If a team like this does not exist in your area, then receive the support and information you need to create one.
