A Doula is a trained professional who provides physical, emotional, informational, and logistical support to a pregnant person and their partner during pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period to help them achieve the best birth outcomes. The doula’s purpose is to help birthing persons have a safe, memorable and empowering birth experience.
