What Are Doulas & Why are They Your BBF (Best Birth Friend)

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

If you’re thinking about hiring a doula, you’ve come to the right place. We have an amazing team of doulas at Oona and we can connect you with one. We have both labour doulas and postpartum doulas to help you through your journey of motherhood.

Labour Doulas:

The World Health Organization came out with a statement a few years ago that said that the number one thing you can do for maternal wellness during labour is to have a doula. The World Health Organization, guys. This is a big deal. Trust us when we say that hiring a doula is some of the best money you will ever spend on anything in your entire life. Doulas aren’t just for the mama. They are also there to help your birth partner have some coping skills to better assist you with your labour.

Postpartum Doulas:

Postpartum Doulas come after you’ve had your baby. They will help you with nursing (although they are often not lactation consultants), they will help teach you how to settle your baby, make light meals for you, do some tidying, and hold and soothe your baby so that you can get some much-needed rest.

If you don’t know what to register for and you already have a labour doula, ask your friends and family to pool money to get you a postpartum doula to help out after your baby is born. Most of our doulas do postpartum work.

If you’d like to learn more about how doulas can support you and your partner, explore our website.
