“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.” John H. Kennell, MD

A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to the birthing family before, during, and shortly after childbirth, to help them achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible. A skilled doula empowers a birthing family to communicate their needs and perceptions and actualize their dream of a healthy, positive birth experience.
