What is a Doula?
A woman who provides emotional, physical and spiritual support to pregnant women during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum.
Why a Doula...
Including a Doula in your overall birthing plan may reduce your labor time up to 25%. Evidenced-based doula support. Source: AmericanPregnancy.org
Because… when a doula attends a birth, she is 100% unconditionally there to support the birthing mama. She is loving her, nurturing her and fully caring for mama’s needs. The gentle touch of her hand, encouraging words and soothing voice brings tremendous comfort to a birthing woman. DoulaLove’sCreation provides even more. Angela has over 18 years as a massage therapist and she knows exactly when and how to touch a laboring woman to bring her relief. Did you know that Doulas are not just for mamas? Papas/partners feel a great deal of support during labor and that someone has their back, as they navigate through the uncharted territory of labor and birth.
