What is a Doula?

Doula is ancient Greek for "a woman who serves". As a doula, my role is to provide families with gentle, nurturing physical, emotional and educational support. To create a judgement-free, calming environment that promotes physical and emotional recovery, bonding, nourishment, and empowers each mom & support partner to develop into the parents and family they desire.
