A doula is...

A person who supports a woman before, during and after the birth of her child.  A doula cares for the woman physically, emotionally, and mentally, but not medically. 

We do not replace the midwife or obstetrician, nor do we replace the spouse, partner or friend.  

We highlight their efforts, we bring them together, we help the woman to have the birth she desires while maintaining safety.  

We inform, comfort and assist families and individuals during the birth process.   

We enhance the role of the mother's birthing partner, helping them to help her, letting them know when things are going well (it's so hard to tell sometimes, especially in a medical setting, if you aren't experienced!).
