“A doula provides non-medical, holistic care to the childbearing family. Prenatally, she provides information to help a family plan what they would like for their birth. During birth, she provides continuous labor support and helps the laboring family work smoothly through the process of labor and birth. She also helps facilitate communication between the laboring family and the medical staff.”-New Beginnings Doula Training
