What does a doula do?
DOULA ~ (/ˈduːlə/), also known as a birth companion, birth coach or post-birth supporter, is a non-medical person who assists a woman before, during, or after childbirth. ~ Wikipedia
Doulas offer continuous emotional support throughout your pregnancy, as well as during your birth and in your postnatal period as well. We’re here to be a listening ear and sound board, walk with you through questions and challenges, and empower you to feel confident about your pregnancy and your birth.
PHYSICAL and partner support
Doulas offer hands-on physical supporting during your labour and birth, through massage, sacral pressure, acupressure techniques and more. Your partner will also be supported and cared so that they may be able to best nurture you and your birth.
Doulas sign-post and educate families as you explore birth preferences, physiology, and parenthood practices using scientific and evidence-based information from reputable studies and sources.
