The word doula is a Greek word meaning women’s servant. Women have been serving other women in childbirth for many centuries and have proven that support from another woman has a positive impact on the labor process. A doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional, physical and informational support to the mother who is expecting, is experiencing labor or has recently given birth. The doula’s purpose is to help women have a safe, memorable and empowering birthing experience.
