A Doula for Military Families

A Doula for Military Families

Supportive care during labor does not include clinical care, but involves women who offer physical comfort, emotional support, and information. Doulas also assist women in communicating their wishes to caregivers, and engage their husbands or partners as desired by the couple. For an expecting woman without any support of any kind, having a doula could greatly improve her outcome and view on birth.
