What is a Doula?

A doula is a person who provides emotional and physical support to you during your pregnancy and childbirth. Doulas are not medical professionals. They don’t deliver babies or provide medical care. A certified doula has taken a training program. They passed an exam in how to help pregnant women and their families during this exciting but challenging experience.

Why You Might Want to Choose a Doula for your pregnancy

A doula can help you and the dad-to-be have a positive and safe birth experience:

  • During labor, a doula can take over coaching now and then to give the dad a break.
  • When desired, a doula can completely free the dad-to-be from coaching tasks — and from having to remember the instructions from your childbirth classes. He can enjoy the process and focus on supporting you emotionally.
  • Studies show that women who use a doula have shorter labors, are less likely to need a C-section, request less pain medication, and have a more positive childbirth experience.
  • Moms who used doulas after birth may have more success with breastfeeding.

Getting support on your pregnancy journey

It’s important to get the right support and advice throughout your pregnancy. No matter which step of your journey you are on, you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for the right support. Please contact our members who can help you with your pregnancy journey.
