What is a Doula?
A doula is a women’s support partner throughout her labor journey. Since the beginning of times, woman have been known to help mothers that were expecting. Throughout this experience, they provided emotional, physical, and mental support. Doulas are non-medical certified workers in birth. Doulas have shown benefits towards reducing medical interventions, artificial drugs, and a speedier recovery throughout pregnancy. The relationship between a Doula and the client is established months prior to the client’s due date. It is important for this relationship to be build on trust in order for the client to feel comfortable with the Doula’s presence. Each Doula is different with their own rules, contract, and their services.
