A doula is part of your birth team. Her role is to provide emotional, physical and practical support to you and your partner during the entire birth process. During the prenatal meetings your doula has gotten to know your wishes, strength and fear. She knows how you like to be approached during the birth process and which events make you feel more relaxed. Your doula is the only one on your birth team who has full focus on you and your partners needs. She has her full attention on you and stays with you until your baby is born. She has built a personal connection with you during pregnancy and knows how to support you.
