Why use a doula? Doulas can:

  • Help with relaxation, comforting touch, positioning and other techniques
  • Enhance your partner’s role
  • Reduce complications, cesareans and interventions
  • Increase satisfaction with your birth
  • Increase rates of breastfeeding
  • Decrease postpartum depression
  • Stay with you from start to finish – no shift changes!

We want every woman to have access to a birth doula*.

The term “doula” comes from the Greek word for ‘a woman who serves’. It has come to mean a woman who provides non-medical support in labour.

In labour women need medical support from an experienced care provider and emotional support from a friend or family member, but they also need:

Reassurance, physical comfort, and encouragement from an experienced professional like a doula, who has no other medical duties to take-up her time. 

A doula is there just for you and your support people. With no shift changes, she will be with you from start to finish!  

All women’s choices and rights are respected and supported.
