Women Helping Women
Women supporting other women through labor is an ageless tradition common to all cultures throughout history. Only recently, in the long story of humanity, has the chain of knowledge and reassurance passing between generations of birthing women been broken. Pregnant women today often find themselves without ties to female mentors whose experience can help them prepare for their own births.
Doula care is a reopening of this fountain of knowledge and support. The word doula is of Greek origin and translates into "woman's servant." Doulas aid families with evidenced based information, emotional and physical support to women to continue on this tradition of women helping women.
