Simply put, a doula is a support person!

Most doulas support you through pregnancy birth and postpartum; providing emotional, physical and informational support as well as advocacy and additional birth-related services. Hiring a doula increases your chances of having your dream birth and feeling satisied and empowered through your birth experience, and giving birth is the most monumental rite of passage you will ever go through, so you want to feel good about it! Having someone experienced in your corner who believes in you can truly make all the difference!

Doulas also foster emotional well-being, and through hiring a doula you are less likely to experience birth trauma and postpartum depression, and more likely to succeed in breastfeeding.
