What is a doula?
A Doula is a woman who provides continuous emotional, physical, non medical and informational support during pregnancy, labour, birth, immediately after and during postpartum days.
A doula does not replace the partner.
Instead, she enhances the support of the partner so that he or she can be there for and love the labouring woman.
A doula helps to take the pressure off of the partner to allow them to enjoy the experience.
Research proves that with a birth doula women have:
A reduced risk of caesarean birth,
Fewer medical interventions,
Better breastfeeding success,
Less postpartum depression.
I provide birth doula services in Cape Town and surrounds.
