What is a doula?

While the midwife is responsible for all things medical, the doula serves to enhance the care of the family by providing physical, emotional and educational support before, during and after birth. She is a non-medical professional trained in working with families during the childbearing year. The benefits of this ancient role were rediscovered in the 1970s through a study done by Drs John Kennell and Marshall Klaus. We invite you to explore our website and learn how a doula can support you during this transformational journey.
