The doula, what's that ?

A nice unknown word to talk about a role which is as old as the world: in ancient Greece, doulas were already present at women’s side during the pregnancy, delivery and the baby’s first moments.

Qu'est-ce qu'une Doula ?

Nowadays, doulas are educated, trained and members of associations.

 

They are no substitute to midwives, but as well a psychological and emotional support, they offer information and logistical tips and help.

A doula supports the entire family, including the Dad-to-be, and brothers and sisters, who too often remain on the side-lines of this unique life experience.
