Shortly put, doulas love and support their clients through the incredible journey of becoming a mother. A doula's role is to hold the space and peace in a room so that a birthing mom can embody the glorious vessel of power and strength that brings life earth side. Prenatally, resources and information are at the forefront of a doula's role. During childbirth, doulas provide emotional and physical comfort measures to help ease the strong sensations of labour. After having your baby, a postpartum doula can assist in filling gaps in physical, emotional and domestic care for the newly expanded family depending on the mother and newborn's specific needs.
