Que Es Una Doula? (What Is A Doula?)

Doula proviene de la palabra Griega significando “cuidadora de mujer.” Una doula es entrenada a acompañar durante parto, ayudar a la persona embarazada y su pareja con emocional/espiritual apoyo, consuelo físico, asistencia con obtener recursos y/o información durante todo el embarazo, y por ultimo una doula es la principal defensor. La doula NO domina las familias o parejas sino que agrega un ambiente de equipo durante el embarazo y el parto (DONA, 2015).

 

Doula derives from the Greek meaning “woman caregiver.” A doula is a trained labor companion, who provides pregnant people  and their partner continuous emotional/spiritual support, physical comfort, assistance in obtaining resources and/or information all through out the birth, and most importantly is one of the main advocates for the pregnant person. The doula does NOT overshadow the families or partners partnership, but compliments the unit by building a team nature during birth and labor (DONA, 2015).
