Doula Services located in Green Bay, Wi.

The word "Doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.

Every Woman Deserves A Doula
​Unlike other members of the birth team — nurse, midwife, doctor — doulas do not perform medical assessments. They don’t monitor a mother’s vital signs, perform vaginal exams, or check a baby’s heartbeat. In fact, research shows that they are more effective because they do not perform medical assessments. No matter how great a midwife, doctor or nurse is, their primary focus MUST BE the physiologic and clinical process of labor and the mother and baby’s safety. It is hard to listen to a baby’s heartbeat and provide sacral pressure to her mama at the same time! Moreover, most nurses 1) have other patients to tend to, and 2) work shifts that often end in the middle of their patient’s labor process (or even during pushing!) 4
