What is a Doula? A doula is a trained companion who is not a healthcare professional and who supports another individual (the doula's client) through a significant health-related experience, such as childbirth, miscarriage, induced abortion or stillbirth, or non-reproductive experiences such as dying. A doula may also provide support to the client's partner, family, and friends. The doula's goal, and role, is to help the client feel safe and comfortable, complementing the role of the healthcare professionals who provide the client's medical care.
Why employ a Doula? A doula is a mediator--she will help you navigate the complex connections between medicine and spirituality. Her purpose is to guide you through the collective consciousness of motherhood, and to the knowledge and support it offers. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the assistance of a doula during maternity and childbirth leads to less risk during birth, decreased recovery times, and increased a sense of well-being. The continuous support a doula can offer will calm your presence of mind, and ease the burden of routine obligations, so you can focus on the growing life inside of you.
