What is a Doula?
A Doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.. - D.O.N.A. International
For centuries women of all cultures have delivered their babies with the support of other women who are with them before labor, during labor, at birth and during the postpartum period. A birth doula provides non-medical emotional and physical support for mothers and their support system and will help a mother prepare for birth. A birth doula can allow a mother to feel safe and supported during her birth experience and provide breastfeeding support. A postpartum doula can help new mothers care for their newborn, provide breastfeeding support and help families adjust to their new roles.
