The wisdom and emotional support provided by experienced women during the
time of birth is an ancient tradition. This tradition has continued through
the centuries, and is now carried on by Doulas in support of a mother
who is expecting, experiencing labor or has recently given birth.
A Doula's purpose is to help the mother provide a safe and empowering
birth experience. The Doula will serve as an integral part of the birthing
team, which include doctors, nurses and other health educators--allowing
the mother to be supported by an entire care team.
When requested by the expectant mother, a Doula can help her with walking
during labor, breathing techniques, positioning assistance, specific massage
techniques, verbal reassurance and spouse or partner guidance.
Expecting mothers can find a certified Doula for hire by visiting the
DONA International site. DONA International is a leader in evidence-based doula training, certification
and continuing education. Expecting parents can hire a Doula and have
the Doula present to support the birth of their child.
Experience birth the way you envision it. Choose Mission Hospital.
