What is a doula?

The word "doula" is a Greek word that means women’s servant. Women have been serving other women in childbirth for centuries and have proven that this support from another woman has positive effects on the labor process.
A Doula is a mother figure you can rely on throughout your baby's birth, enabling you to feel safe and secure. Women intuitively know how to give birth, and when left undisturbed will do so without complication. By helping to ensure the best environment for birth and preventing anything from disturbing the birth process, the Doula can assist the woman to have the shortest, easiest labour she can.
The doula's role is to help woman hava a safe, memorable and empowering birthing experience.
