WHAT IS A DOULA?

 

 A doula is a mother who is prepared and able to give emotional and practical support to mothers before, during and after childbirth based on experience and training.  Most doulas have additional professional or life skills which they bring to their work as a doula.  Some are ex-midwives, others nursery nurses, NCT teachers, nannies, homeopaths, yoga teachers, I could go on.  Every doula is different and personality matters so it is sensible to meet and chat with a few doulas and make sure you are hiring someone you and your partner feel completely comfortable with.
