What is a doula?

A doula is a person who is trained to provide you and your family with support through pregnancy, labour and birth and/or the period of time following the birth. They are not medically trained but have a wealth of experience and provide continuity of care to the birthing person and their partner or wider family. They support families in all kinds of situations, wherever and however you wish to give birth and whatever your parental choices are.

Doulas work together with the family and midwife or obstetricians, providing practical, emotional and informational support. They don’t give advice but can help you make informed decisions by offering balanced and evidence based information.

'If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it' John Kennell, pediatrician, researcher and founder of DONA International.
