Your Ultimate Online Resource for Parenting in Charlotte, North Carolina


Midwives and labor doulas favor a holistic approach to pregnancy. Midwives provide prenatal, postpartum and newborn care, and are often used instead of an obstetrician during the delivery.  Labor doulas provide emotional and physical support for a laboring woman and her family, and are usually used in addition to a medical doctor, and to prevent the need for pharmacological pain relief.

Be sure to check that the midwife/doula you choose is certified by an accredited organization. Your midwife should be a Certified Nurse-Midwife - a registered nurse that has completed required training at a school accredited by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. Doula your choose should be certified by an accredited organization such as Doulas of North America (DONA), or your hospital/birthing center.

Schedule your consultation with your midwife/doula as early as possible.
