What is a Birth Doula?
A birth doula also known as a labour coach or labour support, and originating from the Ancient Greek word meaning female servant is a nonmedical person who assists a woman before, during or after childbirth, as well as her partner and/or family by providing information, physical assistance and emotional support. The provision of continuous support during labour by birth doulas is associated with improved maternal and fetal health and a variety of other benefits.
