Birth doulas provide you (and your partner) with physical and emotional support during labor. They help you navigate the labor process and provide reassurance when needed. We highly recommend hiring a doula if this will be your first birth or your first natural birth.
Postpartum doulas support you in the transition into parenthood. They provide you with an extra set of hands to help around the house, offer breastfeeding support, and support you emotionally through this transition.
