What is a Doula?

What is a Doula?

After you give birth, wouldn’t it be great if your mom was able to come over and spend hours with you, helping you get ahead of the dishes, keeping your other kids entertained and then going home at the end of the day. 

Or maybe a best friend, whom you can open up to about your struggles and who won’t bat an eye when you start telling your birth story… again.

That's what a doula does!

While mom is mothering her child, her doula is mothering her.

"I wish I had a doula to get me through my postpartum depression. I had no one! I was on the east coast away from my friends and family, newly married and first kid. I never knew it would be so difficult!"

1 in 4 women will struggle with a perinatal mood disorder (PMD) like postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety.

Doulas are that non-medical expert that hold the fountain of wisdom in all things baby.

Start a registry that will give you something invaluable. Those first few months with your baby should be just that, with your baby.

Don’t let it go to waste because you were too afraid to ask for support!
