“A Doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible. “
Birthing is a time to connect mind and body. A Doula helps to facilitate this connection for not only the mother but the partner as well. A Doula’s knowledge of correct body posture during pregnancy, labor position changes as well as breathing and comfort techniques help the Birthgiver and baby work together for a healthy satisfying birth. In labor it is the Birthing Person’s job to dilate and the Baby’s job to rotate. Doulas support every type of birth whether unmedicated, medicated, or cesarean, and at home, hospital, or birth centre.
