Doulas of Regina is a non-profit, professional association. Our mission and primary focus is to provide support to our members and maintain a directory of professional doulas in the community.
Doulas of Regina is also committed to raising awareness about the role of doulas and how a professional doula can support families through pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.
What is a doula?
A birth doula is a woman who is professionally trained to provide emotional, physical, and educational support to a mother (and partner) during pregnancy, birth, and early postpartum. Birth doulas use a variety of practical skills, guidance, and compassionate presence to help women and families experience a more satisfying, memorable, and empowering birth experience.
In the weeks following baby’s arrival, the support of a postpartum doula helps facilitate easier breastfeeding and creates a space for rest, nourishment, and family bonding.
