What is a Doula, you ask?
A doula is a personal support worker who is hired by families to support their experiences in pregnancy, through labour and birth, and in the immediate year following the newborns arrival. Like other models of personal support work, Doula Canada supports the continuing education and development of this role across Canada, as families make the request for continuous models of care by highly trained professional doulas.
