Become a Volunteer Doula!
When requested by the expectant mother, Sutter Davis Hospital offers a special program to provide continuous physical, emotional and informational support to mothers during the childbirth process. The Sutter Davis Doula Program is administered by volunteer doulas trained in the physiological and emotional aspects of childbirth. They nurture the woman through one of the life's most precious events, helping to make it positive and memorable. Beyond seeing to the woman's comfort, the doula facilitates communication between the woman, her partner, and medical staff. The doula can explain what is happening during the birthing process and provide information to allow the woman to make informed decisions about her experience. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer doula, read more about the benefits of doulas for labor and delivery or how to become a volunteer doula (.pdf).
