Providing Emotional and Physical Support to Expecting Families

A Labor Doula in Houston, also known as a birth assistant, labor coach, or birth companion, offers emotional and physical support to the expectant family before, during, and after the birth of their baby. Labor Doulas serve as advocates for the family and are an invaluable information source before and during the labor.

Babies and spouses also benefit from the support of a qualified labor doula. Labor doulas from Motherhood Center have noticed babies have an easier time breastfeeding as well as better bonding and overall health. Spouses or birth partners are thankful for the extra care for their loved one.

Labor Support in the Hospital, at Home, or at a Birthing Center.
