The Low Down on Doulas
A doula is a professionally trained labor support person who stays with you continuously through your birth to support you physically, emotionally, and with information to help you make the right choice for you!
I never make choices for you. You're the boss, and I always follow your lead. I'm not a nurse, or a midwife, nor do I have any kind of medical training.
Think of me as a childbirth educator who comes to your home during your birth and helps you stay more comfortable by using hands-on comfort techniques (like massage), while helping you stay calmer by giving you information as you need it.
