What is a Birth Doula?

A Doula is a trained labor companion who:

  • provides physical comfort and emotional support

  • reduces stress and fear

  • enhances labor progress by using timeless positions and methods

  • guides and reassures the partner so they can participate at the level they feel comfortable

  • helps the couple find the information they need to make labor and birth decisions

  • communicates with health care providers, family, and friends

  • advocates for the decisions you make and supports them unconditionally

Why a Birth Doula?

The birth of your children are experiences you will never forget. These miracles deserve the nurturing, attentive care of a trained expert, so remembering your birth story will bring you a feeling of contentment and pride for the rest of your life.

​​

It has been proven that pregnant couples who choose a Doula for their labor and birth reported higher birth satisfaction despite how long or complicated the labor. A doula helps you take control of your birth so that you can have the best birth experience as you define it. A doula does not take the lead but is instead the close confidant for the birthing couple to rely on for information and support.​

Numerous scientific trials have compared birth outcomes of women who had doulas and women who did not. The women who chose a Doula benefited from these medical outcomes:

  • 25% shorter length of labor

  • 28% less likely to have a cesarean section

  • 31% less likely to use oxytocin to speed up labor

  • 34% less likely to rate their childbirth experience negatively

  • There are also many additional positive outcomes, such as less difficulty breastfeeding, increased health of the baby, less post-partum depression, and so much more. Mothers who have had the continuous support of a caring doula generally perceive their early journey in motherhood as easier and more enjoyable.
