Doula

A doula offers continuous presence and emotional care, comfort measures and an understanding of the laboring woman's desires for her birth. Beside her partner there may be no other person to provide a continuous presence, and the doula, unlike a doctor, a nurse, or a midwife, has no other obligation during labor other than the woman in labor. A doula's ability to remain calm and objective may prove to be invaluable.

In the United States and Canada, labor/birth doulas are not regulated although training and optional certification is available.
