The word "doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth and practical support during the postpartum period. Most doula-client relationships begin a few months before the baby is due. During this period, they develop a relationship in which the mother feels free to ask questions and express her fears. Doulas do not provide any type of medical care! A Doula acts as an advocate for the mother, encouraging and helping her fulfill specific desires she might have for her birth. The goal of a doula is to help the mother experience a positive and safe birth. After the birth, doulas spend time helping mothers begin the breastfeeding process and encouraging bonding between the new baby and other family members.
