Powell River Doulas

 Doula:

The word “Doula” comes from the ancient Greek meaning “a woman who serves”.

Today, a Doula is a woman experienced in childbirth who provides you with continuous emotional, physical, and informational support before, during, and after the birth of your baby.

 As birth Doulas we are committed to assisting our individual clients to develop an understanding of their body’s ability. To provide relevant information and resources so that the mother is able to direct her vision throughout the processes that unfold throughout labour. In this way together, with her loved one’s her vision can be respected and the birth process can unfold with her complete participation.

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers
who trust 
themselves and know their inner strength.”
~Barbara Katz Rothman

 “There is a power that comes to women when they give birth. They don’t ask for it, it simple invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it.” ~ Sheryl Feldman
