Doula - Purpose and Value
There are many purposes and much value to having a labor support person (ie: a Doula) attend your birth. The benefits are far reaching and affect not only the birthing mother but your baby and the father as well.
The purpose of the Doula is to provide emotional and physical support to the mother before, during and immediately after you give birth. The Doula is also available to provide information as needed throughout the birth process. It is the goal of the Doula to help you, the mother, have a satisfying, rewarding and successful birth.
Who needs a doula?
Given the positive statistics and the positive feedback from many mothers who have had the experience of having a Doula attend their births, we hope that many more mothers will choose to have a Doula. We love this age-old but newly rediscovered concept and we hope to be facilitators of promoting women helping women in this way.
Who needs a Doula? Every woman giving birth needs someone whom she can trust to encourage and support her in practical ways as she goes through labor.
We volunteer our services for free to teen-moms.

Lori's Bio ~ I am a mother of 4 and grandmother of 9! I love babies and kids. I have been attending births for the last 4 years in Europe where my husband and I were living. I attended births of Hungarian women, a friend from Ethiopia, and American women. Now that we're back in the United States I finished the training in Seattle, Washington and look forward to continuing helping women through this special time in their life. I'm also a Certified Massage Therapist, I believe these two skills go well together.
