All About Doulas

Doula, Defined

A Doula is:

- a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotion, and informational support to a mother before, during, and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible. (credit: DONA International)

- a member of your birth team, who will stay with you through your entire labour journey, be it your first baby or your 16th (like my great-grandmother!)

- a trusted resource to assist with your transition once you welcome your new addition to the family
