Labour doula offers physical, emotional and informational support before, during and after birth. Doula's role is entrenched in keeping the mother and baby at the center of the birth. The foundation of doula work is trust and respect for the new family and the belief that all babies should be welcomed into this world with joy, faith and dignity.
As a water birth facilitator, information and support is offered to both expectant parents and caregivers. The role of the facilitator overlaps with the role of the labour doula.ast
A breastfeeding support session includes information and counseling about breastfeeding and newborns. Not only does the session include hands on support for common breastfeeding challenges, it recognizes the need of the new mother to be heard. Breastfeeding is not just a mechanical function but is entrenched with the emotions of the mother.
