The role of a doula

DOS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

QUALIFICATIONS

Doulas registered with Doulas of Singapore (DoS) are professional birth workers certified with internationally renowned institutions.

Doulas are birth professionals who provide continuous emotional and physical support to a labouring woman and her partner, at home as well as at the hospital.

They work with a couple prenatally to identify their individual goals, needs and expectations in order to help them achieve the birth experience they desire. They may also offer various levels of support immediately after and the days following birth.

DoS doulas adhere to our society's philosophy and abide by our Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. Download full document here.
