Doulas offer the parents labor coping techniques, emotional support and comfort measures to assist them with their birth goals. Doulas work with all kinds of families, and all kinds of birth scenarios. Doulas also offer information and assist parents with the educational aspects of pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. They are hired by the parents and work in hospital, birth centers and homebirth settings. Doulas are welcomed in most care settings in the US, Canada and Europe.

urbanI known that dude my whole life, that's my doula for real.

urbanA person who gets paid to watch a woman give birth. Doulas have no medical training or schooling, but some are highly trained in the art of emotional manipulation, sometimes coercing the mother into carrying out the doulas fantasy birth. This has resulted in putting mothers in danger if they take misleading doula advice. Doulas are not meant to be involved with the child; their sole job is to do what the mother asks, such as fetching her a glass of water while in labor. Many doulas are also known to have strained relations with their mother, and some doulas attempt to overstep their boundries with the new child. Many doulas have been banned from well-respected hospitals due to their interference with life saving procedures.
