What is a Shamanic Doula?
A doula provides physical, emotional and informational support for a woman throughout the birth process. Women who receive continuous support from a doula throughout their labor and birth have scientifically demonstrable better outcomes and greater satisfaction with the birth experience.
A shaman is one who interacts with the spirt world in order to effect change on earth.
A shamanic doula recognizes the state of non-ordinary reality that a birthing woman must traverse. She supports women who desire to be awake, present and transformed by the intensity of birth.
