Doula Referral Services
A Doula is not a doctor, therapist or midwife. The word doula comes form the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother (and her partner) before, during, and just after birth. Here at Wide Horizons For Children, we know that at times a woman may be either facing delivering a baby alone or is anxious about having a baby and could benefit from some extra care and support. We are pleased to be able to refer our clients to a Doula service who can match WHFC clients with Doulas in training. The cost of the Doula can often be covered through WHFC's financial assistance program.
