A doula is a caregiver, a companion who provides emotional support, physical comfort, and assistance before, during, and after birth. A doula understands that your birth story is important in shaping who you are as a mother and as a family. A doula is trained to understand both the physical and emotional needs of a woman in labor. A doula can help a mother and her partner plan for and achieve the best possible birth experience.
Evidence based research shows that continuous support throughout labor and birth provides meaningful benefits for women and babies, regardless of the birth setting.
