What is a Doula?

Doulas provide four key areas of support: informational, emotional, physical, and advocacy.

The doula-client relationship starts a few months before labor, where doulas learn how to best support the choices the birthing person makes. On birthing day, a doula is there to provide comfort measures, physical and emotional support, and guidance so you and your partner can focus on what matters most.

Why should I hire a Doula?

Evidenced-based birthing supports doula work. On average, people who use doulas are more likely to:

- experience vaginal birth versus a cesarian (source)

- experience shorter labor (source)

- have newborns with higher Apgar scores (source)

- birth without an epidural (source)

- report lower stress during labor (source)

- report higher satisfaction with overall birth experience (source)
