The word “doula” comes from the ancient Greek meaning “a woman who serves” and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth.
A birth doula accompanies a woman in labor and “mothers the mother”, taking care of her emotional and physical needs throughout childbirth. The doula provides the laboring woman and her partner with techniques proven to be beneficial during the birthing process.
A doula provides non-medical, holistic care to the childbearing family. Prenatally, she provides information to help a family plan what they would like for their birth. During birth, she provides continuous labor support and helps the laboring family work smoothly through the process of labor and birth. She also helps facilitate communication between the laboring family and the medical staff. The doula is the only person on the birth team that is there specifically for the laboring mother.
