Antepartum (prenatal) support can be provided to expectant mothers upon request. A woman may choose to hire a doula to assist her during the prenatal period if she is experiencing pregnancy complications, which may or may not also require her to be on bed rest. The doula can provide the mother with emotional and informational support, suggest solutions to practical dilemmas, and help with certain household responsibilities, such as meal preparation and assistance with older children. Antepartum rates are comparable to those for postpartum support.
