What is a Doula?
The greek word doula means “woman servant or caregiver”. We now use that word to describe a trained and experienced labor companion who provides the woman and her partner continuous emotional support, physical comfort, and assistance in obtaining information before, during and just after birth. Rates are affordable—contact me today for more information!
