The word doula comes from Greek meaning 'a woman who serves' and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides physical, emotional and informational support to the parent(s) before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.
But why stop there? Why not a Doula to help you through your fertility trials, your surrogacy journey, your health and wellness needs or even any cicumstance under the sun?
The reason is that everyone who is going through challenges in life needs support. Especially compassionate and caring, one on one support that is hard to find today.
At The Birth Nest, you will find that everyone who is part of a support team is respectful, listens well and is trained to help you see so many more options that you have around you, that you may not have thought of before. She acts as a sounding board, confidante, patient advocate, research partner, emotional rock, and, in some cases, spiritual guide. She will be someone who will strive to help you, who is gifted at figuring things out, and who has the capacity to support you through your emotional storms.
