A doula is always sensitive to Mom’s wishes and she can be Mom’s voice when Mom cannot express her needs and desires. Even when certain events prevent the birth from going as planned, a doula is there for Mom through any intervention even a caesarean birth. It is with the simple things that a doula makes a difference.A doula builds a special relation, almost a partnership with the birthing couple, during the weeks before the birth of the baby, a closeness
