Doula Services …

A doula is a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.

Studies have shown that when doulas attend births, labors are shorter with fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily.

Doulas are among the services and support mothers can choose to use at the Birth Center. On the second Wednesday of every month from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, Meet the Doulanight is an opportunity to meet local doulas and ask questions about their services.

We are proud to announce that Doulas.com has adopted Operation Special Delivery. Cappa/OSD and Doulas.com have agreed to make the switch to better serve our women and families in need. We will now be listed on Doulas.com to access a wider range of services and people in need. Please follow our link and see the changes being made. Please be patient while we undergo the transition

 

Operation Special Delivery (or OSD), provides trained volunteer doulas for pregnant women whose husbands or partners have been severely injured or who have lost their lives due to the current war on terror, or who will be deployed , or unable to attend the birth due to military reasons. The doulas that are volunteering are doing so at a pro bono (free) rate, and are doing so by their own discresion.

 

What is a doula? A doula is specially trained to give informational, emotional, and physical support to women during childbirth. A doula does not perform medical tasks, but is trained to provide uninterrupted support to a mother in labor and during birth.
