What does a doula do?

“A doula enters the space of a labouring woman and is highly responsive and aware of her needs, moods, changes, and unspoken feelings. She has no need to control or smother. Every pregnant woman should have the benefits of a doula. This person does not detract from the role of the baby’s father or co-parent, by the way. It enhances it and leaves him (or her) free to do the very important job of loving the mother. ”
