Doula - The Basics

I haven't sat down yet to write out a post about my doula training, but in the meantime I thought I could get everyone reading on the same page. 

Before having kids I had no idea what a doula was.  I'm not surprised when I'm greeted with blank stares after I tell people my plans to be one.

Simply, a doula is a labour companion.  Someone who stays with a woman her entire labour.  Someone who provides information and support, not advice or opinions. 

And that's what I want to do.  Now that I've been trained, I'm ready to take clients.

If you are interested in having a doula, Doula CARE is a great resource.
