It's World Doula week (22nd-28th March) which is coincidentally the Spring Equinox (return of fertility in many cultures).
The purpose of World Doula Week ("WDW") is to empower doulas all over the world to improve the physiological, social, emotional, and psychological health of women, newborns and families in birth and in the postpartum period.
According to WebMd, a Doula is a person who provides emotional and physical support to you during your pregnancy and childbirth. Doulas are NOT medical professionals. They don't deliver babies or provide medical care. A certified doula has taken a training program and passed an exam in how to help pregnant women and their families during this exciting but challenging experience.
Why should you consider getting a Doula?
A doula is a great companion for the mom-to-be. They "mother the mother". They have a wealth of experience in attending to pregnant & laboring women. They will be there from day 1,  through the birthing process and months after the baby is born. They also provide support in case of a miscarriage or induced abortion. They serve as liaisons between the doctors, nurses and your partner during the process. They are the ultimate birth coach.
