mrs tush do you like to push dr seuss pushing poem

Often we doulas are required to be a very creative bunch. Figuring out the best ways to support mom, guiding dad on what he can do to help her, and all the other tools in our bag of tricks during labor and birth.  Well, sometimes we need to get a little creative outside of birth too.

Today’s post is brought to you by Katie Murrey of Mamatoto Doula Services in Fargo. She recently composed this adorable Dr Seuss pushing poem and read it at our local birth circle group, which of course was on the topic of pushing. I thank her so much for using her talents to create this amazing piece of birth poetry. You can find Katie on Facebook and inquire about her many other talents as well.

If you’ve done a search on Google for “what does a doula do” you’ve certainly come across a LOT of information!  There are loads of great resources out there including on DONA (Doulas of North America) and

I highly recommend that you not only consider “what is a doula” and “what does a doula do?” but also “WHY do I NEED a doula?”  At the end of the day, it comes down to better infant outcomes and higher maternal satisfaction. And really, what better reasons do you need than healthier babies and happier moms?!

As part of the doula services I offer for birth, I provide continuous care during labor and delivery. I do not replace your birth partner, mom, and especially do not replace dad. Because I have had specialized training to support women during birth combined with my experience working with a variety of moms in many situations, I can help you have a confident & dignified birth and help you to work towards the birth experience you hope to have.
