What is a Doula?
A doula is a professional labor support person who assists the expectant person and their partner to prepare for birth.
She offers education as well as physical comfort and emotional support during labor and birth.
A doula helps a birthing family know what to expect and to be aware of the many choices and options available to them.
A doula helps a birthing person to achieve a positive, even empowering, birth experience. She offers support and guidance to the birth partner as well—promoting the bonding and growth of each parent as they adapt to their new parenting roles.
Doulas work for the birthing family in the setting they feel most comfortable birthing in, whether that be hospital, home, or birth center.
