have complex needs during childbirth and the weeks that follow. In
addition to medical care and the love and companionship provided by
their partners, women need consistent, continuous reassurance, comfort,
encouragement and respect. They need individualized care based on their
circumstances and preferences.
International doulas are educated and experienced in childbirth and the
postpartum period. We are prepared to provide physical (non-medical),
emotional and informational support to women and their partners during
labor and birth, as well
as to families in the weeks following childbirth. We offer a loving
touch, positioning and comfort measures that make childbearing women and
families feel nurtured and cared for.
