Our Services

A birth doula is defined as a professional support person trained in the needs of the mother and family during pregnancy and childbirth. The doula offers non-judgmental support, guidance, evidence based education and practical hands-on support during childbirth including comfort measures. Doula originates from the Greek word meaning woman servant. A birth doula recognizes the profound impact of childbirth on the mother.

As a Doula I:

  • Recognize that the entire process of labor and birth is an experience the mother will remember all her life

  • Have knowledge of the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor

  • Assist the mother in preparing for and carrying out her plans for birth

  • Stay with the woman throughout labor

  • Provide emotional support, physical comfort measures and an objective viewpoint, as well as helping the woman get the information she needs to make informed decisions.

  • Facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner and her clinical care providers

  • Perceives her role as nurturing and protecting the woman’s memory of the birth experience

  • Allow the woman’s partner to participate at his/her comfort level

Evidence published by the Cochrane Review on the benefits of having a Doula found:


* 12% Increase on having a spontaneous vaginal birth

* 9% Decrease in the use of any pain medications

* 28% Decrease in the risk of having a Cesarean Delivery

* 31% Decrease in the use of Pitocin

* 14% Decrease in the risk of newborns being sent to the special care nursery

* 34% Decrease in the risk of being dissatisfied with your birth experience
