what is a post natal doula?
A Doula provides continuous support for the whole family through pregnancy, birth and the early days/ weeks of parenthood. Filling a role that new mothers and families have always needed, a doula will listen, give confidence and never judge. We offer flexible, practical and emotional support in the mothers home. Doulas are not medically trained.
