The role of a Birth Keeper/Doula is to provide emotional, practical and informational support.
As a Birth Keeper/Doula, I will be by your side holding space for you (and your partner/birth partner). Offering non-medical techniques during the progressive stages of labour and birth to help you to feel comfortable, calm and at ease.
You also can extend the service to support your postnatal phase whilst you recover immediately post birth.
By no means is a Doula a substitute for a doctor or midwife since we do not have the same in-depth medical training.
