A doula whatah?
According to DONA (Doulas of North America), doulas are trained and experienced professionals who help women and their partners navigate through pregnancy, labor and the postpartum fourth trimester. A doula is your dedicated support person who understands the emotional and physiological changes that occur throughout this journey and provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support along the way. Doulas help facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner and her clinical care providers. And because doulas recognize birth as a key experience the mother will remember the rest of her life, we honor each woman's autonomy in giving birth, her own way, as well as the opportunity of witnessing and holding this sacred space.
