Doula

What is a doula

Perinatal Doulas are professionally trained people who provide emotional, practical and informational support and care for you and your baby before, during, and after labour and delivery. Perinatal Doulas do not provide any medical or surgical care.


 End-of-Life Doulas provide the same emotional, spiritual, practical and informational support and care for people who are passing and their families.



There are four types of doulas:

Antepartum doulas (before birth)

Birth doulas (during birth)

Postpartum doulas (after birth)

End-of-Life doulas



How are our doulas trained?

Our Doulas are trained through an intensive two or three day seminar that includes hands-on experience in breathing, relaxation, and positioning skills. They also learn other comfort measures like massage and movements to reduce pain. 


We also require our Doulas to be trained in CranioSacral Therapy.


Our Doulas are encouraged to pursue continuing education on a regular basis. Some of the education has been:

  • Yoga Teacher Training (regular, prenatal, mom & baby and more)
  • Spinning Babies
  • Infant First Aid & CPR
  • Birth Trauma & Support
  • More to Come

Womb To Wings believes in continuing education and supporting our practitioners to continue learning.



How do I know if I have found a good doula?

Trust your instincts. It is a good idea for you and your partner to meet with the doula and interview her. You may wish to interview more than one doula to help find the right one for you.

When choosing a doula you may want to consider the following:

  • how well she listens;
  • how comfortable she seems with your choices;
  • her training and experience personally and as a doula;
  • her philosophies and the role partners may or may not play;
  • her fee and references;
  • where has she worked before–for example, home, hospitals, birth centres; and
  • if she works alone or as part of a team–if as a team, you may want to meet the other doulas should she not be available.
