What is a Doula?
The word Doula ( pronounced doo-la) is becoming more common, although having a Doula by your side at Birth dates back as far as ancient Greek times. The word Doula translates to "servant to woman".
A Doula is hired to provide support for the birthing mum & couple, during the pre natal period, the birth & an agreed, post natal time.
The Doula provides information to the couple so they can make decisions around 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.
The Doula views Birth as a miraculous & natural event on a woman's life.
Some amazing statistics I'm very proud to be a part of ....

Epidurals by 60%
