A woman in labor is a masterpiece to behold. She is beautiful. She is art. She is painting her birth experience. We need to respect her canvas…..her space. Let her create.This is what a doula does. She assists the laboring mother and her birth partner in navigating the mountains and valleys of pregnancy, labor and birth. The doula is an educator, an encourager and an empowerer.”
Why use a doula?
Studies have shown that when doulas attend birth, labors are shorter with fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily.
