What is a doula?
A Doula is a woman who is trained to assist another woman during childbirth and who may provide support to the family (before and) after the baby is born. All of the doulas providing services at Mamas on Bedrest & Beyond undergo rigorous training and certification before being allowed to serve you. They all maintain their own doula certifications, CPR certifications, auto insurance and liability insurance.
