What is a doula anyway?
A doula is many things. Traditionally we were the same thing as midwives, and the same thing as the woman in the village that did all those things – birth, death, medicine, comfort, care, knowledge. I’m sure many generations ago I would have been called a water woman, or a white witch.
Now doulas are a word for non-medical, but highly trained care for birth. We attend pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period and make sure a mother, and her family, know what works best for them, helps them through decisions, and concerns, attends the entire labour and birth, and keep assisting you through the postpartum period.
I also am a consulting doula for advanced assistance on many woman, child, birth, and parenting topics.
