What is a doula?
Can a Doula help after the baby has arrived?
What is the difference between a doula and a midwife?
“Doulas can help you birth your baby at home, at birthing centers, in hospitals, with or without pain medication — even if you have a C-section or choose to have your baby in the woods, a doula can help wherever or however you choose to have your baby.
Midwives, on the other hand, are medically trained and are generally tasked with the same duties as an OBGYN, but they will likely spend more time with the birthing family than a doctor would. They also do more home deliveries.
