Doulas Win National Award
A doula is a personal birth coach who offers mothers-to-be comfort and reassurance during labor and delivery. The LMC Doula Program has also served as a benchmark for other hospital-based programs across the country. Currently, the program has sixteen doulas on staff, and almost half of the staff has been with LMC for ten years or more. Since the LMC Doula Program began fifteen years ago, it has assisted more than 6,500 families.
