Find Your Birthing Partner in a Local Doula
Giving birth is not a one-size-fits-all experience for parents: in addition to where to give birth and provider choice, some want additional support through pregnancy and delivery.
Enter doulas: certified through DONA International, doulas can assist during pregnancy, giving birth, and provide postpartum support as well.
What is a Doula?
A doula can be an invaluable partner for expecting parents.
According to DONA International, a doula provides physical, emotional, and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
