A Doula is someone who provides non-medical support to women and their families during labour, childbirth and into the
postpartum period. The presence of a Doula can be a major advantage for physicians, women and their families. Doulas provide a level of support that is often difficult to achieve in a busy maternity care centre. Typically mothers that employ a Doula see increased satisfaction with the birth experience, lower intervention rates and excellent infant outcomes. The added support during the postpartum period can make all the difference for new parents!
