Birth & Postpartum Doula Services 

Supporting you before, during and after your birth

What is a doula?

The term Doula derives from ancient Greek and means “Woman’s servant.
A doula is a woman who is trained to support the mother and her partner before, during and after birth physically  and emotionally. She has profound knowledge about pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period and provides  continuous emotional support for the woman to enable her to have the most positive birth experience possible.


What’s the difference to a midwife?

A doula, unlike the midwife, has no medical competencies and replaces neither the midwife nor the doctor. The doula is though a valuable addition to the midwife. The doula builds up a relationship of trust with the mother in advance. She therefore understands the emotional needs of the woman before, during and after her birth

“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.”

Dr. John Kennel
