Certified Doula Services in Houston TX

Providing Emotional and Physical Support to Expecting Families

A Labor Doula, also known as a birth assistant, labor assistant or 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. Doulas from Motherhood Center have noticed babies have an easier time breastfeeding as well as better bonding and overall health during a doula pregnancy. Spouses or birth partners are thankful for the extra care for their loved one.
