A doula is a trained professional who provides physical + emotional + informational support and one-on-one care to the mother during labor, birth, and the immediate postpartum period. Your doula will stay with you and guide in a personal and non-clinical way so that the birthing process becomes less stressful and more comforting.
I Have A Gynec, Why Hire A Doula?
Childbirth is an emotionally intense moment. Mothers tend to carry the memory of childbirth close to their hearts the entire life. As a result, the birth experience will have a significant impact on the mental and physical wellbeing of the mother and the baby. Creating an experience where the mother can feel positive and strong, can foster the future relationship and health of the mother and the child. This is what exactly a doula does. Doula’s sole aim is to help the mother achieve a satisfying, healthy, and safe birth. During birth, a doula offers advice on comfort measures such as breathing, relaxation techniques, and positioning and provides continuous comfort and emotional reassurance to the laboring mothers.

- Reduction in length of labor
