Birth Doula

What is a Birth Doula?

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.

For pricing and full details of services please look at each doulas bio.

Don't forget to always take a look at the doula vacations to ensure the doula you want is in town.
