A doula is an word from ancient greek that means female servant. The role of a doula is as old as time and is based on the tradition of women supporting women in childbirth. As a doula i come alongside a mother and offer her support and information as she plans for her birth, and while she is giving birth, I provide continuous support throughout labour, birth, and the period of time afterwards. I usually meet with a mother twice before the birth and am available on the phone and through email for questions or just to chat through issues. I then go on call for two weeks before the due date, and remain on call until the baby is born.
