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.
