Doulas

A doula is a non-medical coach or labor support person who assists a woman and her family before, during and after childbirth.  They do this by offering emotional support, physical assistance as well as providing information.  Having a doula has shown to be beneficial to a laboring woman and her baby by decreasing interventions including cesarean sections and increasing satisfaction in the birthing experience.  The goal of the doula is to make the woman and her family feel safe and confident in the birthing process.
