Mother’s Intuition offers you the service of a Doula

What is a Doula, you may ask?

Well, a Doula (pronounced "doola") is a Greek word meaning "woman servant or caregiver".  A doula is a trained labour support person.  She provides physical and emotional support to a mom and dad during the labour and birth.  For centuries women have been helping labouring mothers and have proven that support from another woman has a powerful and positive impact on the labour process.  A doula believes in “mothering the mother” - enabling a woman to have the most satisfying and empowered time that she can during pregnancy, birth and the early days as a new mum. This type of support also helps the whole family to relax and enjoy the experience.  She also provides emotional and practical support after the birth (postpartum).

“ To me, being a doula isn’t a job. It’s something that comes from within. A passion... a fascination... a joy... I believe that every woman’s experience during pregnancy and birth should be a positive and beautiful one. Labour and birth should be something natural, yet they are quickly becoming so mechanical and surgical. Women are making life-altering decisions because they are forced into it. My goal is to guide women into making educated decisions..”
