The word "doula" originated in ancient Greece & simply meant "servant." In terms of childbirth, it now refers to a non-medical professional who provides continuous physical & emotional support during labor, childbirth, & immediately after. Hiring a certified doula is like taking your childbirth educator with you to your birth.
Studies have shown that hiring a doula can help reduce the use of interventions in childbirth & improves the experience overall. As a doula, I give birth parents the information they need to make their own informed decisions & I am supportive of those decisions no matter what. I am also a Mother & have experienced childbirth myself first hand.
