What is a Doula?
The role of a doula extends back into history for thousands of years. For as long as women have been giving birth, there has been a recognized need in birthing mothers for the support of a woman whose sole purpose is to see to their physical and emotional comfort throughout the journey of childbirth.
A doula provides continuous support during labor through the use of empowering words, soothing touch, positioning, and so much more.
Mothers who give birth with the help of a doula are statistically shown to have better birth outcomes, less need for medical interventions during labor and birth, and to report more satisfying birth experiences. Doulas build a community of support surrounding birth and new motherhood that is as valuable now as it has ever been.
