                               What is a Doula, and what does she do?


A Birth Doula

  • Recognizes birth as a key experience the mother will remember all her life
  • Understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor
  • Assists the woman in preparing for and carrying out her plans for birth
  • Stays with the woman throughout the labor
  • Provides emotional support, physical comfort measures and an objective viewpoint, as well as helping the woman get the information she  needs to make informed decisions
  • Facilitates communication between the laboring woman, her partner and her clinical care providers
  • Perceives her role as nurturing and protecting the woman's memory of the birth experience
  • Supports the partner in allowing their role to feel authentic and without the pressure of 'needing to know what to do'
  • Provides nonjudgemental support in whatever choices the birthing family makes to have a positive and satisfying birth experience
  • Understands and embraces the diversity of our community's birthing families and is 100% LGBT friendly
