What is a doula?

A doula is a trained non-medical birth coach who supports a mother and/or partner through childbirth.The overall goal of a doula is for their client to feel prepared, be informed and feel emotionally stable to experience childbirth; all while complementing the role of the health professionals who are actually providing medical care to the client.
