What are Mother’s PEARLS?

Like natural pearls, today's babies are all diverse- coming from various cultures, backgrounds, and household dynamics. Yet, one thing every baby has in common is the beauty of birth. In order for the “Mother’s Pearls”(the babies) to thrive, they require warmth, nurturing and patience to mature.

Supporting Women through
Pregnancy and Birth

Women have traditionally been supported by a companion during childbirth, and there is good evidence this benefits both the woman and the baby.

The World Health Organisation recommends continuous support for women during childbirth. Yet across the world, initiatives promoting health facilities as the safest place to give birth have not necessarily respected this tradition.

But now we have new evidence on the ways women are supported during childbirth by a Doula or other labor companions.

Research has found labor companions (including Doulas, partners, and family members) support women during childbirth by providing information, advocating for the woman’s needs, and providing practical and emotional support.

Importantly, our research also indicates pairing a woman with a Doula from the same ethnic, linguistic or religious background as her may be an important way to improve equity and provide culturally responsive care.
