WHAT IS A DOULA?
We are professional trained in childbirth and mother caring, providing emotional and practical support to the mother, the father and sometimes other members of the family to prepare and welcome the venue of a new child. We are sensible to the various needs of the mother, the father and the child during the expectation, the birth and the postnatal period. Many studies are showing that with the support of doulas, women are more likely to have a positive birth and for both the mother and the child a more positive post-natal experience... But it's important to understand that we will never replace midwives: we do not deliver the babies, we do not support with medical care or diagnose conditions. Our aim is also to support midwives the best we can.
40 DAYS POST NATAL
The first few weeks after birth are ESSENTIAL. It's a time for the mother and for the child to rest and recover from the birth. Support will be needed from your network of friends and family. More information on POSTNATAL SUPPORT NETWORK
