What is a Doula?

Susan - Doula

A Doula is a professional support person who supports you and your support people through pregnancy, labour, birth and early days post-natally.

The benefits of having a doula have been known in many cultures for many, many years.

Our own culture is just now coming to realise, through research, that having a doula with you will significantly reduce perinatal complications such as:

  • caesarean sections
  • augmentation
  • babies admitted to neonatal intensive care
Many of the women taking part in this research had an uncomplicated labour and birth that required no interventions, with a significantly shorter duration of labour suggesting that constant human support may be of great benefit to women during labour.
