A quick video explaining what a virtual doula is and how they may help your birth process. This video covers how a doula is helpful even if virtual.
Having a doula will prepare you and your birth partner in advance. Things they may do:
- Teach you and your birth partner techniques to try on the day
- Answer questions and provide resources

A virtual doula prepares you and your birth partner in advance of the birth and provides support during the birth through phone, messages or video.
