Sutter Roseville Medical Center’s doula program provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to patients during the childbirth process.
Doulas at Sutter Roseville Medical Center are trained in the physiological and emotional aspects of childbirth. They’re also educated in the stages of labor and delivery. Our doulas nurture laboring patients through one of life's most precious events.
Doulas also facilitate communication between the patient, their partner and their healthcare providers. The doula acts as a guide through the labor process, making suggestions to help the patient cope with the intensity of contractions. As a labor partner, they’re educated on tools that can help patients feel more comfortable during labor and birth, including hydrotherapy, birthing stools, therapeutic touch and massage.
