What is a Doula and what to look for when you are seeking one -Traditionally, a doula is a woman offering
‘Doula‘ is a Greek word that came to mean “woman’s servant”.
A Doula believes in the entire process that you take for your labour and birth. She believes in your so greatly. She has got your back.
* She is a great advocate for birth
* She is a great listener
* She doesn't judge or impose her own beliefs
* She will teach you and your birthing partner how to cope with labour and birth (Child Birth Education Classes)
* She will work alongside medical professionals as a team
* She trusts your instincts
* She offers
I promise to respond to your deepest emotional needs, stay with you throughout labour and birth and to create an atmosphere in which the birth can be as positive as possible.
A doula is also there as a support for the father/birth support/friend and will help the couple work together according to their wishes.
