What is a Doula?
A Doula is a person who provides non medical support and information to birthing people and their families. “Doula” is a Greek word that means “Woman’s servant”.
Why do we need a Doula?
Because you are ready to take on your most rewarding and challenging and beautiful time of your life, but with the help of someone who you can trust.
Someone who will hold space for you when you are most vulnerable and powerful, with a reassuring glance or a gentle touch. Someone who can decipher the medical terms used by your care providers and show you the risks and benefits of every choice you need to make and back your decisions 100%.
You are ready to be looked after in your most vulnerable state and do not want to be led blindly into your medical choices or led into medical interventions. You want to know that you have someone in your corner who will pick up on the finer details and remind you to breathe.
