Services : Birth Support: Doulas

In The Womb: Labor/Birth Coaching Services

Labor support coaches or doulas are trained and experienced in childbirth. They stay alongside you throughout your labor. The coach offers help and advice on comfort measures such as breathing, relaxation, movement and positioning. She also assists families in gathering information about the course of their labor.
