What is a Doula?
Doula is a Greek word meaning “woman servant”. Currently, the doula is the one who accompanies the woman or the couple, during pregnancy, labour and postnatal period.
The main role of a birth doula is to provide practical and evidence based information on pregnancy and birth, and to protect mother’s space, privacy, a basic need for a physiological birth. A birth doula has knowledge of the physiology of birth, but does not have a clinical role; offers emotional and physical accompaniment, may use comfort measures (breathing, relaxation, movement,…) and helps mother to make informed birth choices.
Postnatal doulas work in the home of the families as they may need, helping around the house, offering reassurance, supporting with infant feeding. This will help families to settle down after childbirth and bond with their baby and encouraging a smooth transition into parenthood.
