“Doula” is an ancient Greek word meaning  “one who mothers the mother.” A doula assists a woman throughout her pregnancy, labor and birth experience, and the postpartum period by helping her understand and cope with this major life event. Research shows that the presence of a doula during labor and delivery may reduce complications and significantly reduce the amount of stress and duration during labor.
