ONGOING - Volunteer Doula (Labor Assistant) Program
Doula, the Greek word for "mothering the mother" refers to woman who provides continuous non-medical emotional and physical support during childbirth. Her skills include relaxation and breathing techniques, positioning to reduce pain, massage and enhanced labor progress. With the help of a doula, early mother-infant relationships and breastfeeding are enhanced.
Our program is seeking volunteers who are able to give one day a month to provide support to women during labor and delivery. Program requires attendance at a series of childbirth classes followed by completion of an eight-hour workshop. Workshop dates are determined after childbirth class requirements are met.
If you are interested in becoming a doula at St. Mary Medical Center, please call Diane Gora at 219-947-6084.
Location: St. Mary Medical Center, 1500 S. Lake Park Ave., Hobart, IN
