What is a Birth Doula?
A doula is derived from the Greek word “a woman who serves ” A doula provides non-medical support to women in pregnancy and labor such as; emotional support, pain management, stress release and relaxation techniques. Doulas will also provide information on various aspects of pregnancy and the new baby. It is a doula’s job to be there for a mother in any way see fit. Each experience with a mother is unique, she is bringing a beautiful baby into the world and that is a special moment. A doula helps prepare a mother and family, emotionally and physically for that precious baby to arrive. Doulas help enable mothers to have an empowering and gratifying birth experience.
