What is a doula and how do you find a good one?

Do you know what a doula is?

Perhaps you think they are something only rich hippies can afford.

But if you could afford one, what do they actually do?

Professor Hannah Dahlen is from the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Western Sydney University.

She explains what doulas are qualified to do, and what they’re not.

She also gives some great reasons for why doulas are wonderful birth companions and how to find one worth their weight in gold.
