What Is A Doula???
A Doula is a supportive companion experienced in childbirth.  Her role is to provide physical, emotional and informational support to women and their families during pregnancy labor and birth.  The Doula offers help and advise on comfort measures such as breathing, relaxation, massage and positioning.  Doulas specialize in non-medical skills and do not perform clinical tasks like vaginal exams or fetal heart rate monitoring.  Doulas do not diagnose medical conditions, offer second opinions or give medical advice.  The Doula's goal is to help the woman have a safe and satisfying pregnancy and childbirth experience!
