What is a doula?

Doulas are trained childbirth coaches who do not replace your primary healthcare provider but instead offers additional support throughout your birth experience. They know how to guide and support through pregnancy, labor, and postpartum.

What does a doula do?

Doulas provide a unique set of skills and techniques in order to make mom and baby more physically, emotionally, and spiritually comfortable during labor.

When is a doula used?

While doulas are most commonly known for their assistance throughout labor, they can also be useful aids in the first few days or weeks of babies life while mom is recovering and adjusting to their new lifestyle.

Common Doula Misconceptions

Doulas are not the same as a Midwife or OBGYN.

Doulas do not replace the position of the partner during the birth and labor.

Doulas are there to support you and your choices, not to push their personal beliefs about birth onto you.

If you are interested in having a doula at your birth, please ask our Midwife for more information at your next prenatal appointment! If you are not currently a client with us, feel free to send us a message with any questions on options or pricing! Thank you.
