A new round of volunteers currently training to become doulas?

Here are 8 new trainees learning ‘active birthing positions

There is good evidence that doula support improves the experience and birthing outcomes for both the woman or birthing person and the baby.

During Labour, doulas offer help and suggestions on comfort measures such as breathing, relaxation, movement, and positioning.

Moving around, staying upright, and changing positions can:

  • ease the pain
  • help you cope
  • make you feel in control of your labour
  • increase your chances of a shorter labour
  • push the baby downwards
  • help you find the best position for giving birth.

Could you be a doula and offer antenatal birth and postnatal support? Call us now to register for the next cohort starting in January 2023
