What is a birth doula?

The word doula is a Greek word meaning women’s servant. Women have been serving others in childbirth for many centuries and have proven that support from another woman has a positive impact on the labor process.  Fast forward to this century and you will find a variety of doulas available for all different life stages and experiences.  Doulas can offer a service for anyone in the stages of prenatal, birth, post-partum, full-spectrum and even end of life.

As a birth doula, I have the opportunity, honor, and privilege to be a conduit of physical, mental, spiritual and emotional support for anyone who is welcoming a new life into this world.
