World Doula Week


The doula is the person who carries, supports, helps the parents during labor and postpartum outside of the medical aspect of the birthing process. The doula shares a special connection with the family.

As a labor and delivery nurse, I enjoy working with doulas, they make my work easier. They help me answer the families' needs better and faster.

As an IBCLC I love working with PP Doulas, they often are the ones noticing and calling for help with breastfeeding issues.

It is the world doula week and I wanted to acknowledge their work, patience, and dedication.

Don't underestimate their powers, they can/may :

-Reduces the incidence of c-sections

-May shorten the length of labor

-Reduces epidural and analgesic requests

-Increases breastfeeding initiation and continuation

-Increases mother’s satisfaction of birth experience

-Can reduce the incidence of postpartum mood disorders

-Increases new parents’ confidence in the care of their newborn.


As I always say :

"I strongly believe in teamwork to deliver the best care to the patients and their families"
