For Doulas, Midwives & Childbirth Educators
The Soshe app can help your clients think through their birth preferences (evidence-based!) even BEFORE you meet with them, which gives you more time to spend on the softer side of your support.
At Soshe, we're huge supporters of doulas (both birth and postpartum) and women attending childbirth and breastfeeding classes to prepare for what's ahead. Our vision is that Soshe is highly complementary to the care and services you provide.
For birth doulas and midwives (and OBs), Soshe can help make your prenatal meetings with your clients even more productive. If you recommend that your clients download the Soshe app before you meet, your clients can get an evidence-based head-start on forming birth preferences. Even if your client has already taken a childbirth class and feels informed and prepared, you can still use the Soshe app and your client's Soshe birth prep printout as a free and easy tool to discuss your client's preferences. Without having to spend time on the basics of childbirth, you can focus your prenatal client meetings on the softer side of your support, for the birthing person and any partner, co-parent, family, friend, or anyone else offering support.
For Childbirth Educators
For childbirth educators, Soshe lets you recommend an app that goes beyond "your baby is the size of a [insert name of fruit here]". The information in the Soshe Birth Prep tool is credible, easy to refer back to, and focused on the most important decisions around childbirth (not just the easiest decisions, or the controllable ones). Soshe believes that a "good patient" is an informed one, who knows that childbirth can be unpredictable and is prepared to participate in decision making if and when surprises arise.
Refer Your Clients to Soshe?
Our hope is that Soshe is consistent with the information and approach you take with your clients, and that you enthusiastically recommend Soshe to the clients you work with. That's the very high bar we've set for ourselves.
We're asking for help in getting the word out, because we believe we share a common purpose: better information and preparation leading to better outcomes for birthing parents and babies.
The Gift of Feedback?
We would be incredibly grateful to have your feedback, especially regarding the Birth Prep tool in the Soshe iPhone app. Will you download the app and let us know what you think? Your feedback will help us serve new parents even better.
