A doula is a professional birth coach who provides emotional, informational, physical, and mental support to women during pre-pregnancy, prenatal, birth, and postpartum periods.

A doula does not provide clinical or medical care, give medical advice or diagnose medical conditions, and does not replace the care of the client's/patient's physician or nurse midwife.

Young Couple Expecting

Support:

A doula is a "bonus" to the client's birth support system and does not replace the support person such as a partner, spouse, or family member.
