What's

a Birth Doula?

A birth doula is a person trained and experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional and evidence-based informational support to the family before, during and just after childbirth.

 

EVIDENCE OF A DOULA:

From what has been studied, a woman accompanied by a trained and professional doula throughout the birthing time is likely to have a more positive outcome. 

Doula Support Reduces Unneccessary Intervention. Here are the stats:

  • 60-80% reduction in cesarean births

  • 25% shorter labor

  • 60% reduction in epidural requests

  • 50% reduction in oxytocin use

  • 30% reduction in analgesic use

  • 34% reduction in forceps delivery

 

 

BENEFITS OF A DOULA CO-OP:

Being in this field for several years, one begins to see Doula burn out as a common occurrence. Your family will be supported by Doulas who are rested, refreshed, and ready to rock your baby out! Your family  will also receive the expertise from two experienced Doulas verus one Doula.
