Doulas are distinct from midwives and medical doctors because we do not provide any medical care or keep any medical records. However, doulas and midwives share a common approach to practice which is rooted in compassionate care for childbearing women, newborn infants and families across the continuum from pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, birth, postpartum and the early weeks of life. Midwives and doulas can work together as helpers to guide families through a childbearing experience that meets their hopes of how they would like to welcome their baby into this world. Indigenous midwives and doulas honour Indigenous people’s languages, spiritual practices and cultural traditions, upholding borth as a deeply profound and sacred event.
