The Difference Between A Midwife And A Doula

The Difference Between A Midwife And A Doula

When it comes to choosing a midwife or doula for your baby's birth, it can get a little confusing. Are a midwife and doula the same thing? Can a doula deliver your baby? Will a midwife administer drugs for pain management?

A midwife can deliver your baby, but she also provides you with emotional support during the delivery. She will help keep you calm and comfortable while you're in labor.

If at any time she feels that you need additional care, she will call a backup doctor and you will go to the hospital to deliver.

A doula can't deliver your baby, so he or she is used in a hospital, birthing center or home birth with a physician or midwife. The doula does not assess the woman's health, or decide when she should go to the hospital or call the midwife. A doula will guide you through breathing techniques to help you relax, as well as make you comfortable with...
