Doulas in Armenia support women in labor

Iveta Kosyan Suvorova is among the few doulas of Armenia. Since 2021, she has been supporting pregnant women who are preparing for the big day.

A doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, physical and informational support to women throughout their pregnancy, birth and the early postpartum period.

The practice is very new in Armenia. Some hospitals approach the profession with caution, while others are much more welcoming.
