A birth doula is a trained professional who provides continuous support to help the mother and her partner through the labor and delivery experience.
Birth doulas can help answer questions or help the mother find answers to her questions. They can help prepare a birth plan, help with comfort techniques, are available throughout the mother's labor and delivery (whether it be natural, medicated, or a cesarean birth), and can also assist with breastfeeding.
A doula can help the father or birth partner by offering suggestions on comfort techniques, get food and/or drink, give the father or partner a break if needed, and can also provide reassurance. A doula NEVER replaces the father or birth partner, but instead becomes an addition to the support team.
Please note that if you choose to work with one of our doulas you will be considered a Mothering the Mother client even though you sign an individual contract with your doula. This means your doula will share your name and information with the back up doulas in the group, as well as statistical information with the director.
