The word “doula” is ancient Greek for “woman’s servant.” In the modern context, a doula is a trained non-medical person who attends to the mother’s needs (as well as her extended family) before, during and after childbirth by providing information, physical assistance and emotional support. In a sense, a doula “mothers the mother.”
