Hold it…What is a Doula?

As doulas, we meet the educational, emotional and physical needs of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.  From providing evidence-based research to assist you in preparing for your birth, to wiping your brow with a cold cloth mid-contraction, Foothills Family Doulas are both professional and practical.

How Would I Benefit from Having a Doula?

What if you had a friend who knew the ins and outs of birth?  Someone who had experienced it all before, whether at a hospital, birth center, or home?  A friend well-versed in medical rhetoric: your own personal interpreter.  Someone who is there, day or night, to assure you that what you are experiencing is normal- and to direct and assist you if something is outside of the scope of normal.  Imagine having a loyal pair of hands to hold your new baby while you finally take that well-deserved post-labor shower.  This is your doula.
