Pregnant? A doula can help -- During labor, this helper is a woman's best friend
About six years ago, Erin Foley had just had her second child and she read in a parenting magazine about birth doulas and thought it was an interesting idea.
"A doula (pronounced doo-lah) is basically professional labor support," Foley said. "We don't do anything medical. We're there to support the woman and her partner before, during and after childbirth."
She was intrigued, so she researched it more and found she had an even deeper interest.
