Doulas believe in mothering the mother; she is there to help you to have an empowering and satisfying experience in becoming or being a mother. Doulas do not give or offer medical advice or support, but she will be there for you to support you in whatever the choices you decide to make. If you decide to have a postnatal doula, again, she will support you to look after the baby, unlike maternity nurse who will take charge in taking care of the baby.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. There is more information on Doulas available at the links section.
