Happy International Doula Month!

Doulas play such an important role in helping families have a satisfying birth experience, and we are saying THANK YOU! A doula is a support person who is part of a family’s team, and who supports and guides the entire process. A doula is NOT a midwife!

There are two types of doulas-birth doulas, who help support families through pregnancy and birth, and postpartum doulas, who help new parents transition into parenthood. 

Different groups certify doulas, including DONA (www.dona.org), CAPPA (www.cappa.net), and Childbirth International (www.childbirthinternational.com) among others.

This video explains doulas well:
