Doula is a Greek word meaning a "woman who gives another woman support and assistance". As a trained childbirth assistant, a doula provides continuous emotional and physical support throughout a woman's labor. The idea of the doula comes from the tradition of women helping women in childbirth, to make the birth a positive, rewarding experience for mothers and their families.
