Birth doulas may find it helpful to have their client complete an intake form and/or a questionnaire before meeting with them for the first time. Intake forms and questionnaires help mom and the birth partner get clear on what they want for their births, and it gives valuable information to the birth doula. Birth doulas can learn more about their client’s preferences in terms of the kind of birth they want and the kind of support they desire from their doula. It also serves as a way to guide prenatal visits by helping to create a dialogue, not only between doula and clients, but between moms and their birth partners.
These forms are in Microsoft Word format so that you can customize them to better suit you and your practice.
