What’s a Doula?

Doula. Birth support worker. Birth worker.
Birth companion. Birth supporter.

They’re all alternative names for the same calling.
A Doula (pronounced doo-la) is a trained professional who supports you
during pregnancy, labour and after birth.

A Doula’s primary responsibility is to you, the mother. When midwives
finish their shift or attend to other women, your Doula will remain and
support you continuously while you labour and birth. You remain responsible
for all decisions; however, a Doula is with you to:

  • Give/get you the correct information so you can choose what’s right for you

  • Physically and emotionally support you throughout labour, birth and postnatally

  • Make sure your partner, family members and medical professionals are on board with your priorities

  • Teach, guide and support your partner.

Yes, we can hear what you’re thinking and no, Doulas aren’t just for hippies.

There’s nothing new age about women supporting women during childbirth. This is how women have traditionally been supported for thousands of years. Our doula training is scientifically based and the benefits of engaging a doula to assist with childbirth have been scientifically proven.

What’s D.O.M.E.?

D.O.M.E. is a collective of kick arse Doulas operating in Melbourne and the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

We’re professionally trained. We’ve got chutzpah. We’ve got energy. We’re hands on and we’re ready for the long haul. And to be completely honest, we’re brilliant at supporting you birth.

We believe birth doesn’t have to be scary and we want you to enjoy this memorable time.

Just so you know, although our clients think we’re freakin amazing (check out our testimonials), we can’t perform miracles. There may be a possibility one or more of us are actually unicorns but that’s not important right now.

What’s important is although there aren’t any guarantees you’ll have the exact birth you envisage, we’ll prepare you and support you when you’re most vulnerable so you’re in the best possible position to handle each challenge.

I honestly don’t think I could have gotten through it all without Jen and would definitely have her by my side again!
