About Us

About Us

Making medical decisions alone can feel like an overwhelming challenge. Many people struggle with understanding the nuances of their care, conditions, medications and options. Further exacerbating this problem in our overburdened healthcare system.

In a perfect world our primary care doctors would be able to assist us in understanding and decision making. Unfortunately, they are working in a system that overtaxes their time and limits their ability to interact more meaningfully with their patients. This is where a medical guide can be so valuable.

At My Health Doula, we pair you with a Healthcare Guide who can best support your needs. Our guides are dedicated to taking time with you, explaining all of your medical questions to you and helping you take a more informed and active role in your health and wellbeing. Our guides are doctors and experts in their fields. Having a Medical Guide puts an expert in your corner, a person who adds to your healthcare team while keeping your goals and wishes at heart.

Having a reliable resource, who can routinely provide you with a deeper understanding of your unique health situation and a full picture of your options leads to improved health outcomes. This is the biggest benefit of our service.

What is My Health Doula?

You can think of My Health Doula as a service that connects individuals with specialist medical guides that aim to lessen the stress of navigating our often complicated healthcare landscape.

Our team of compassionate personalized health care guides offers assistance, providing a wealth of information, comfort, and emotional support for across the diverse broad spectrum of all your healthcare needs. Just like birth doulas, we at My Health Doula strive to review all healthcare information, listen attentively, and guide individuals seamlessly through complex or chronic health issues.

What are Health Care Guides?

Health Care Guide (HCG) are personalized consultants who fall between a doula and a medical provider providing space for a person to be heard regarding their healthcare needs and helping them navigate through an increasingly confusing healthcare journey.

What are Doula Concierge Operators (DCOs)?

Your first point of contact will be with one of our Doula Concierge Operators. Our DCOs will assist you with your intake forms and will make sure you are placed with the right Healthcare Guide to best fit your unique needs.

What is a Doula ?

The term "doula" originates from ancient Greek word and means a "woman who serves." Nowadays, it refers to a woman who is trained to support another woman during childbirth and provide assistance after the baby is born. A doula offers various forms of support, including providing information, physical comfort (without medical procedures), and emotional encouragement to expectant families throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery, and the first three months after the birth of the baby. The most significant part of a doula's role involves offering informational guidance and emotional support to the family.

Do you need a Health Doula?

Managing your healthcare can sometimes feel like being adrift in uncharted waters. There can be storms, rocks and surprise currents. In the US we see a variety of different medical providers who specialize in different fields of care. Unfortunately, they don't often have the ability to collaborate. This means that in most cases there is not one doctor that is overseeing your care and helping you make the most informed decisions. This is where a Healthcare Guide can be beneficial. They can look at all of your past and present issues and connect the dots. They are able to step back, take in the whole picture, and make you a road map that can guide you through your different options.

Our Source of Inspiration

My name is Emilie Adams, and I wear several hats. I'm a birth doula, a lactation counselor, and I chair a hospital board at a critical access hospital. It seems people often associate me with a wealth of healthcare knowledge, and to some extent, they're right. Through these roles, I've come to notice where there are gaps in our current system, and I've come to truly appreciate the value of having personalized support along the way. This got me thinking: what if we had doulas for healthcare?

As a doula, one of my main focuses is providing families with the kind of support that goes beyond just facts and figures. I help them make sense of all the information they are receiving and guide them as they journey into parenthood. I also offer them a hand to hold through it all.

Now, while I might know my way around pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period, it's important to note that I'm not a doctor. I can't dive into medical inquiries the way an experienced physician can.

So what if we had doctors who could also play the role of a doula? Imagine having someone who not only helps you understand your health better but also works with you to make it even better.

This is what "My Health Doula" is all about. We've brought together a team of doctors from various specialties who are here to provide support in a way that's informed and considerate.

"My Health Doula" came to life because there's a real need in our healthcare system that's currently going unmet. It's the need for genuine understanding, validation, and the kind of guidance that makes navigating our complex healthcare landscape a little less overwhelming.

I'd like to extend an invitation for you to be a part of this journey. Together, let's explore how having personalized support can truly transform your healthcare experience.
