Doula Births

Doulas are welcome at The Mother Baby Centers, but please note that families must arrange their own personal doula. Expenses related to a doula would be established by your insurance provider. We encourage you to check with both your doula and your insurance provider to understand costs and ensure coverage.

WHAT IS A DOULA?

A doula is specially trained to guide you through labor with relaxation and breathing exercises, massage, words of encouragement and other comforting measures. A doula can also work with your spouse or support person to encourage involvement and to create a warm and positive experience. A doula does not replace your health care provider, nurses or other medical staff.

Create a Birth Plan

A birth plan will guide you in detailing your preferences for labor and delivery so that you can discuss them with your partner and health care provider. Create a birth plan.
