What is a Birth Doula?


A birth doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, practical and physical support to women and their families before, during and after birth.


Doulas take client’s individual needs and desires into account and provide customized care to the birthing person and their support team. The doula also provides their client with evidenced based, unbiased information so that they can make decisions that are right for their specific situation.


A birth doula is essentially your birth coach, or birthing best friend, who makes it their priority that their clients experience the best birth possible.

Doulas shine when it comes to non-clinical support. We connect. We educate. We nourish. We encourage. We guide. We hold space. We love.
