                                                      What is a doula?

     "Doula" comes from ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves".

This term is now used to describe a trained and experienced professional.

Birth Doula is a person who provides emotional and physical support,
education, and aide to the laboring woman and new mom.

A Postpartum Doula provides emotional and practical support during the
postpartum period to give the new mom (and family) more quality time to
bond with the baby.
