What is a Birth Doula?
Doulas are trained labor support professionals. Research has shown that continuous labor support decreases the need for epidural anesthesia, medical interventions, and cesarean sections. Learn more about doulas at DONA.org.
Minnesota Birth Center selects a team of trained Doula Interns who make their services available to MBC families at a low cost. If you are interested in doula support, please contact one or more of the doulas below to set up interviews.
