What is a Doula?

what is a doula

In honour of World Doula Week, I thought I would write a short post about what doulas do. As you can see from the picture, the main role of a doula is to support someone through pregnancy, birth and/or the postpartum period. We provide emotional and educational support to a birthing person and that person's family.

Savasana in Pregnancy

During pregnancy, laying or sleeping on your back is not recommended, because it can negatively impact the blood flow to the baby in utero. If you are a regular practitioner of yoga, you will know that your practice usually begins or ends with savasana, a pose that involves laying flat on your back for an extended period of time.
