Doula Services in Nanaimo:
A doula is someone who specializes in helping women through pregnancy and childbirth, one of life’s most beautiful transitions. Historically, women from all cultures have assisted and cared for mothers through their pregnancies, births, and post partum transitions, regardless of whether it is a mother’s first birth or one of many. These tender times are a special opportunity for families to bond, and to grow together in love and understanding.
A doula offers her experience, knowledge, and training as support as you go through your own unique birthing experience. The transition to motherhood begins well before the baby is born and a doula’s role is to help prepare you for this, to answer questions during your pregancy, and to provide emotional and physical support. This special relationship of trust helps you experience this amazing milestone in a natural, satisfying, and healthy way. The role of a doula during your pregnancy, delivery, and post-partum are flexible and you determine the involvement you prefer.
