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.

A doula will guide you through breathing techniques to help you relax, as well as make you comfortable with...
