Postpartum Doula Services
What Is a Doula?
Doula comes from the ancient Greek and means “a woman who serves.” It is now referred to as an experienced and trained professional to offer families information as well as emotional and physical support for the parents, siblings and new addition to their family. Doulas can be used before, during, and after birth to provide practical and emotional support.
