“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.” Dr. John Kennell
But really, what IS a doula? This wonderful video from DONA International gives us a great glimpse into what a doula is, what a doula does and most important WHY, in other words: how important her role is in serving expectant and new parents. As Penny Simkin puts it in the film: “We can’t control how long labor is going to be or how difficult, but we can control how we care for women.”
In addition to providing birth doula services to expectant parents, Baby Bump Services also offers DONA-approved Birth Doula Trainings in Boise, Idaho several times a year facilitated by Kyndal May and Jennifer Clover. Our BEcoming a Doula Workshops are part of the vision of DONA International:
“a doula for every woman who wants one.”
