What is a birth doula?

Doulas provide mothers with both emotional and physical support before, during and after labor.  Your Doula works along side your doctors and nurses to provide additional support.  Studies show that mothers feel more secure and confident with a Pregnancy Doula present.  A Doula will help an expecting mother reduce anxiety levels in mothers and partners.

  • Breathing techniques
  • Massaging

Massage During Labor

Can help you relax between contractions, reduce pain and provide emotional support and encouragement.  Because stress interferes with production and labor-inducing hormones, there is even evidence that massage can promote a speedier birth.
