The Role of a Doula

Refers to someone who helps a woman during pregnancy, and/or childbirth. A doula's duty is to provide a continuous source of comfort, encouragement and support (both emotional and physical).

What Kind Of Help Can A Diabetes Doula Provide?

Supporting you on your diabetes journey, these sessions typically answer questions like:

  • What type of doctor do I need?
  • What questions should I be asking my doctor?
  • What books and other resources can help me understand?
  • How do I deal with my insurance?
  • Outside of the medications, my doctor has prescribed, do I need other special supplies?
  • Where can I get all my supplies?
How Does A Diabetes Doula Session Work?

An online live session will be conducted via Zoom videoconferencing software. It's user-friendly and works on computer, smartphone and/or tablet. You will be able to talk to each other face to face with your Doula.

*Disclaimer: Please know that this service is complementary to your medical advisor's recommendations. Doulas do not provide medical advice. If you or your child have diabetes of any kind, or pre-diabetes, we recommend you get appropriate medical guidance from a licensed doctor.

What are the benefits of a Diabetes doula?

You have an instant mentor and confidant in your Diabetes Doula.

A diabetes diagnosis is shocking, and there is so much to take in. The clinical information is overwhelming enough, but there are a host of emotions, concerns, and questions that come along with a diagnosis.

After meeting with your doula, you should feel more grounded and optimistic about being pregnant with diabetes. Diabetes is not easy, but it is certainly manageable, and our doula session will show you how that is possible.

About DiapointME

DiapointMe was founded by Pamela Durant, the mother of a child with Type 1 Diabetes. Her son was diagnosed in 2009 at only 20 months old. DiapointMe is the place for people touched by diabetes.

"Despite 15 years of international healthcare management experience at the time, the diagnosis led me through a steep learning curve about diabetes. The realization that I had no idea how to manage diabetes, and there were very few experts to tap into at that time. A few years later, as I began to advocate and present at medical conferences, observed the lack of support available for others to navigate the fear and confusion of this condition."

"In 2016, I decided to leave a successful corporate career to create DiapointME. Our organization provides diabetes education, diabetes services, a diabetes network, advocacy, and products to support people living with diabetes."

"My mission is to change the perception of diabetes, and people living with diabetes. First and foremost, that no one is to blame. Secondly, my programs and products support women who are caring for someone with diabetes, or have diabetes themselves. When women are empowered, true change can happen."
