What is a doula?
Doula's provide emotional, physical & educational support with a collaborative attitude, and professionalism to the birthing mother and her family. Birth Doulas may provide support to a woman in childbirth at home when a primary care provider is present or up until the time to leave for the birth site (hospital or birth center). The Birth Doula is not the primary care provider nor should she misrepresent herself as one. http://www.tolabor.com/about-tolabor/scope-of-practice/ In my practice, I strive to offer support with the energy of grounded compassionate sisterhood believing the moment of conception on through the birth and postpartum is a rite of passage to be honored with compassionate presence, respect & deep listening. It is an honor to be with you!
