The role of a birth doula is to provide physical and emotional support during pregnancy and birth, as well as evidence-based information to help you get clear on what is important to you.
A doula’s presence is non-medical. They will support your pregnancy, respect your preferences, advocate for you and teach you how to advocate for yourself. They are your cheer squad and believe in you! There are also postpartum doulas who support new mothers in their transition to parenthood. A doula is an incredibly valuable resource to have on your team!
