MOTHERing The MOTHEr
All ancient societies across the world had their version of a doula. Women, usually those who had already had children, would accompany others in labour and postnatally. Supporting during the birth, nourishing the new parents to enable them to care for their newborn, allowing them to rest and recover postnatally; the village was involved as babies were born and families grew. The doula seeks to replace that in our busy modern lives. Whatever form your family takes and however much support you have already, we can help you start your new journey in the most positive way.
