WHAT IS A DOULA?

A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

WHY ARE DOULAS ESSENTIAL?

Studies have shown that doulas can help cut back on time spent in labor, reduce a mom’s anxiety, lower the rate of medical interventions (including C-sections) and can improve mother-baby bonding post-birth. Doulas assistance has even been shown to improve the odds of breastfeeding success.
