So you have heard of a doula but still not really sure what they do?

We recently asked our community of doulas what it is they do, and these were some of the responses.

Doulas care for you emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. They provide education and help you communicate your needs.

Doulas work with women and families at all stages from preconception till infancy and all throughout.

They work directly for you and so are independent of the people who are looking after you and your babies medical needs, however, we want you to feel totally safe so we will happily work alongside the other people in your team.

We Birth are proud to educate, support, encourage, mentor and nourish doulas so they can support you with confidence. www.webirth.org
