What is a doula?


The doula understands birth as a key life experience and acknowledges it as a rite of passage in a woman’s life. The doula acts as a team player with the woman’s partner and health care providers. The doula assists the woman during labor, preparing her for birth and by helping her carry out her birth plans. As well as actively labor coaching. Doulas often use the power of touch and massage to reduce stress and anxiety during labor. Doulas understand the emotional mental and physical transitions that occur during labor and birth and helps create a healthy mom, healthy baby outcome.



What are the benefits?


A recent Cochrane Review, Continuous Support for Women During Childbirth, showed a very high number of positive birth outcomes when a doula was present. With the support of a doula, women were less likely to have pain medications administered, less likely to have a cesarean birth, and reported having a more positive childbirth experience. Other studies have shown that having a doula as a member of the birth team decreases the overall cesarean rate by 50%, the length of labor by 25%, the use of oxytocin by 40% and requests for an epidural by 60%.
