Meet the Doulas: BBRN September Monthly Event
We are blessed to have a wealth of doulas in our county! Come join us at EcoBambino to learn what a doula is, how a doula can support you and your birth partner, and meet many of the wonderful doulas that work in our area.
Doula is a greek word whose definition has come to mean a woman who helps other women. The word has further evolved to mean a woman experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to the family before, during, and after childbirth.
Doula support compliments and strengthens a fathers (or other birth partners) role. A doula often can give suggestions and encourage the father to touch, talk, and to help in ways that feel truly comfortable to him and comforting to the mother.
