Colins Debut-049

My name is Rasee Govindani and I am a Thai- and English-speaking Bangkok doula and childbirth educator. I have been a doula for 10 years and have had the privilege of supporting thousands of families in their parenting journeys.

I offer birth and postpartum doula packages as well as group and private childbirth classes. I also offer prenatal consultations and placenta encapsulation. I offer everyone a FREE 30-minute Zoom consultation so please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to get to know me better.

You can also find me (and our doulas) at Choices in Childbirth on the fourth Saturday of each month and I am at Bangkok Breastfeeding Cafe every other week.

“Of all the ways birth outcomes could be improved, continuous labor support seems like one of the most important and basic needs for birthing people. Providing labor support to birthing people is both risk-free and highly effective. Evidence shows that continuous support can decrease the risk of Cesarean, the use of medications for pain relief, and the risk of a low five minute Apgar score. Labor support also increases satisfaction and the chance of a spontaneous vaginal birth. Continuous support may also shorten labor and decrease the use of Pitocin. Although continuous support can also be offered by birth partners, midwives, nurses, or even some physicians, research has shown that with some outcomes, doulas have a stronger effect than other types of support persons. As such, doulas should be viewed by both parents and providers as a valuable, evidence-based member of the birth care team.” – Evidence on: Doulas
