During the field assignment students will have the opportunity to serve alongside women in a developing setting, giving comfort measures and supporting midwives and other health professionals in the birthing process. This practice enables students to gain skills in cross-cultural communication and become confident in their role as a birth partner and supporter. Often health professionals in developing settings do not have the time to spend with each individual. The doula can bring a solution in under-resourced health services.
