In partnership with March of Dimes Local Collective, Sanyika the Doula, Harmonious Birthing, and Paradigm Doulas, PUSH Birth Partners® is thrilled to share that doula training and expansion is underway! The purpose of this training initiative is to increase the number of women of color who are community-based doulas serving in Greater Houston as well as increase the number of individuals in the Greater Houston area who are most in need of doula care have access to a doula and doula services during birth and the postpartum period.
WHAT IS A DOULA?
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.
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.
