Midwives Versus Doulas?
We want to clear up some of the misconceptions out there about Midwives and Doulas. Some people think that Midwives are Doulas, which is not true. Doulas are people that provide support during births and there to provide physical and emotional support for birthing people and their families. They are not medical professionals, but they are trained to provide comfort measures. If you are interested in having a Doula involved in your care, you would have to find a Doula yourself. Unfortunately, they are not covered through the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and you would have to pay out of pocket for a Doula. A Doula can be an excellent investment for some births, women and their families. If you are interested in having a Doula involved in your care, you can bring it up with your midwife or your health care professional.
