A Good Doula Believes

Overall, a Doula believes it is a woman's rite of passage to birth her baby where, with whom, and how she wishes.

 

A Doula is knowledgeable in comfort measures such as relaxation breathing, massage and positioning, managing labour sensations using water, hot packs and aromas among other skills.

 

Doulas specialise in non-medical skills and do not perform clinical tasks. A Doula is skilled in supporting the birthing woman and her partner to meet the challenge of labour one contraction at a time - calmly, professionally and with purpose all the way up to the moment

you kiss your baby's face.
