Whether it is a family’s first or their tenth baby, a doula provides a positive birth and postpartum experience. They nurture, support and offer expert guidance to families during pregnancy, birth and the early postpartum time. Research shows that women who engage a doula are:
• less likely to need Pitocin
• less likely to have a cesarean birth
• less likely to use any pain medication
• more likely to rate their childbirth experience positively
The doula's purpose is to help women have a safe, memorable, and empowering birthing experience. They will
• educate you and your partner on the birth experience
• ease physical tension and pain
• facilitate communication with your care provider
• provide partner support
• provide breastfeeding support
• Less anxiety
• More confidence
• Shorter labor
• Better pain management
• Comfort and reassurance
• Less postpartum depression
