Having a doula means you’ll benefit from continuous emotional and physical support from someone trained and experienced in assisting birthing women. In today’s busy hospital environment it is unlikely that a nurse will be able to provide this type of continuous support. A doula will get to know you and your wishes before the birth and can help you advocate for your choices during the birth. Every baby’s birth is the birth of a new family as well and a doula can support all members of the family, including fathers, siblings, and grandparents, as they welcome their newest addition.
