We know, by scientific evidence, that the empathic presence of a doula reduces pain and therefore the use of anesthesia in natural birth. The doula is a gentle presence, that supports both mother and couple while providing science evidence based information and following the guidelines of WHO for natural low risk births.
The doula supports emotionally and physiologically during the pregnancy, birth and/or post partum. By fostering healthy bonding and nourishing the woman’s power through respecting her choices, needs and requests while expanding her psycho somatic resources to deal with the challenges and changes of this stage of her life, with confidence and safety.
