What exactly do doulas do?

When explaining my job I generally use words like, "provide emotional support, physical comfort and information". There's so much more than that. It is almost indescribable how we operate. Each and every birth is different. We are not there to take the place of partners nor take the spotlight. I wanted to share this video because it depicts the role of the doula very well.

That's was actually nice. I thought it was going to be nasty.

When someone is with you during the birth reassuring you that everything is normal, your whole perspective on the process can change!
