WHAT IS A DOULA?

The word Doula (pronounced doo-la) is becoming more common in the western world. Although having a Doula by your side at Birth dates back as far as ancient times, the word Doula translates to "servant / slave to woman".

A Doula is hired to provide support for the birthing mum & couple, during the prenatal period, the birth & an agreed, postnatal time. 

The Doula provides information to the couple so they can make decisions about how they would like their birth to be. Whatever that may be, the role of the Doula is to support those choices & to assist in making the transition from pregnancy into motherhood as amazing & satisfying as possible.

The Doula views birth as a non-medical event. It is a miraculous & natural event in a Woman's life.

If you are interested in Meaghan Doula Service an obligation-free meeting with Meaghan is arranged to see if she is what you are after as a Doula on your Birthing day.

Doula Services fee is $3,500 with a $300 non-refundable deposit required at the time of booking after the initial meeting.
