Resources For your Pregnancy, Postpartm & Newborn
Birth & Postpartum Doulas
Doulas come to assist you in pregnancy or labor or birth or postpartum, whenever you want them to be there for you. Each doula has their own gifts and parameters so it is good to meet with them to see how it would be a good fit. They can help with meals, childcare, presence at labor, someone to talk to, postpartum duties and much more.
Sacred Birthing School, led by Barbara Essman, has been birthing many doulas on Kaua`i island.
