DOULA SERVICES

Birth Connections is proud to offer both Labour and Postpartum Doula Services. We customize all of our packages so that they are tailored to fit your needs and those of your families.

what is a doula

 

  A doula is a trained caregiver who provides physical and emotional support to a mother during labour and afterward. Doulas provide continuous care, unlike doctors and nurses that keep coming and going from the room. Doulas are trained in many different comfort techniques such as massage, acupressure, positioning and more, all to help mom throughout labour. But doulas aren't only there to provide support to mothers; they are there to support the partner as well. As doulas, we encourage the partner to take an active role in the comfort of the mother, and we are there to support and comfort both. 

why have a

doula

 

 Studies have shown that when doulas provide labour support, women have shorter labours, fewer medical interventions, fewer caesareans, healthier babies and are more satisfied with their experience.
