what does a doula do

When you are preparing for labour. You will learn practical ways to support you physically and emotionally through labour and delivery. I will practice positions that can be used to encourage the progress of labour and ease discomfort. I will offer techniques for using breath as a tool for the mind and body, and to ease tension and fear. I will never leave your side during your labour.  This will give you confidence knowing that you will have someone you know all the time. A person that you respect and know before labour begins..  Remember calm- endorphins-relaxation...  or fear-pain-tension-medication etc.
