I had wanted to become a doula for over 20 years, and then an opportunity presented itself early 2019. Since then I have immersed myself with pregnant mummies, new mummies, new families and new babies. I am passionate about women having a positive birth experience no matter the twists and turn their  labour may take them on.…

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

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.
