What is a Doula?

A doula (in childbirth) is a person ,male or female, who  provides guidance and support to the mother of a newborn baby. 

There are many type of doulas who specialize in different types of support. In childbirth there are Birth Doulas who begin their support around 35-36 weeks of pregnancy. A birth Doula will support the mother up until labor. A post partum Doula is  a doula who specializes in maternal support immediately after the childbirth. 

We are both Birth and Postpartum Doulas!
