THE VILLAGE DOULA

“BRINGING THE ANCIENT ART OF CHILDBIRTH BACK TO THE MODERN HOME”

Our Mission:
Since the dawn of time, birth has been an event attended and supported by wise elders who provided space and loving support to women as they made the rite of passage into motherhood. Ancient cultures all over the world recognized this critical period as a profound time of growth, transformation, and nurturing.

“I like to think of myself as a bridge – a bridge between a new family and their fears, between modern maternal care and ancient practices, between a new mom and her belief in herself. At The Village Doula it is our aim to bring back the ancient tradition of women supporting women through the transition that is birth and the postpartum period.”

WHAT IS A DOULA?

A doula is an ancient Greek term that translates into “caregiver” or “woman of service”
and has been used over the past several decades to describe a woman who provides various non-medical
support measures during labor. More recently, it refers to someone who offers emotional and physical support to a woman and her partner before, during and after childbirth. A doula believes in ‘mothering the mother’. She enables a woman and her partner to have the most satisfying birth experience possible, from pregnancy and into motherhood.

WHY USE A DOULA?
Doulas have been directly correlated with increasing the overall satisfaction of birth experiences and reducing the need for interventions during birth.
