I am happy to explain this to you with short examples where YOU maybe a doula:
Do you have a garden?
You help your plants to grow and thrive, you help them to grow big and strong so that they can soon bear fruit. You protect them from unwanted pests and terrible weather
= YOU ARE A DOULA!
Do you have a house or an apartment?
You ventilate it daily and you're cleaning it regularly, so that your home stays nice and fresh = YOU ARE A DOULA!
Of course there are many other examples and possibilities where you are or could be a doula. What are you thinking of?
Now to the target groups of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum doula:
Families trying to conceive
Pregnant women with or without a partner
Young pregnant women
Pregnant women from other cultures
Women with birth trauma
Women with a disabled child or (impending) stillbirth
A doula trusts nature and thus that the woman giving birth can manage this process on her own.
She accompanies the woman giving birth at all times, regardless of the decision the woman makes, because the mother-to-be knows best what she and her child need at that time. Thus, she also accompanies and supports women / couples who consciously and for their own reasons decide in favor for a caesarean.
Several studies have found positive effects related to the loving and supportive care of a doula during childbirth:
