What is a Doula?
A Doula is a person who provides emotional and physical support to you during your pregnancy and childbirth. Doulas are not medical professionals. They don’t deliver babies or provide medical care. A certified doula has taken a training programme and passed an exam in how to help pregnant women and their families during this exciting but challenging experience.
What does a Doula do?
Doulas can perform different roles, depending on your needs.
Labour or birth doulas provide continuous care during labour.
Postpartum doulas support the new mom during the first few weeks after birth. They help with care and feeding of the baby and small household tasks.
