Having a Doula
A doula is a nonclinical professional physical, emotional and spiritual advocate and support person during prenatal, labor and postpartum.
Many studies have show how extremely affective doulas are at reducing rates of cesareans and improve the rate of 5 minute APGAR scores. Doulas reduce the risk of medical interventions, including pitocin, epidural, forceps and vacuum assisted birth. Doulas decrease labor length. Doulas have a positive affect on how mothers view their birth. Having a doula reduces your risk of postpartum depression and enhances probability of breastfeeding.
Professionally trained, compassionatively driven.
