Iowa City: Meet the Doulas
MEET THE DOULAS
Iowa City Doulas serve pregnant women in the Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty and surrounding area. We are a group of doulas committed to providing women in our community with prenatal, postpartum, labor and birth support.
So, what is a doula anyway? Doulas are women trained to provide non-medical support to a pregnant woman and her partner prenatally, during labor and birth, and in the immediate postpartum period. VBAC? Epidural? Unmedicated? Planned c-section? No matter what kind of birth you are hoping to have, a doula will works with a couple to define for themselves what constitutes a good birth and helps them prepare for this life-changing event, providing information on normal birth processes, hospital procedures, comfort measures, and relaxation techniques to help a couple make their child's birth the best it can be. Postpartum doulas also work in the home, providing mothers with extra support for breastfeeding and newborn care.
