WHAT IS A DOULA, WHAT DOES A DOULA DO?

A birth doula is a trained labor support person who provides emotional and physical support to a laboring woman and her partner. While she is not a medical professional, she is trained in the normal physiological process of birth and can offer a wide range of comfort measures during labor – from massage to continuous emotional reassurance and physical, natural, coping techniques to help deal with the discomforts and stresses of labor and birth.

A DOULA:
(From the DONA website)
*Recognizes birth as a key life experience that the mother will
remember all her life…
*Understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor…
*Assists the woman and her partner in preparing for and carrying out their plans for the birth…
*Stays by the side of the laboring woman throughout the entire labor…
*Provides emotional support, physical comfort measures, an objective viewpoint and assistance to the woman in getting the information she needs to make good decisions…
*Facilitates communication between the laboring woman, her partner and clinical care providers…
*Perceives her role as one who nurtures and protects the woman’s memory of her birth experience.
