Ask the Expert... What is a Doula and how can they help expectant and new parents!

August 4, 2019

As a maternity and newborn photographer I am always interested in local businesses that are connected to parenthood, birth and babies.



At a recent business event I met the very lovely Manisha from Nurturing Mama, who is a fully qualified doula and a Mum of three who told me all about doulas and their role in pre and post natal care for expectant parents.  Before meeting Manisha I had no idea of what a doula was, what they did, how they can advocate and care for a Mother.  They can provide all the guidance, support and experience that I wished I had when I struggled as a new parent.  So I am very pleased to say that Manisha has kindly put together this blog post that will answer all of those initial questions you may have about doula services, so you can decide if this is something you might want to find out more about.
