Having a birth doula can help you have a more enjoyable birth!
The Advantage of having a Doula.
Studies have shown the following benefits of having a doula present at birth:
45% reduction in c-section rates
25% shorter labor
60% reduction in epidural requests
50% reduction in pitocin use
31% reduction in analgesia use
34% reduction in forceps or vacuum deliveries
Women who have used a doula at birth are more satisfied with their births, feel more confident before and after the birth, show a quicker rate of bonding with their newborn, are less likely to have post-partum depression, and more likely to breastfeed.
Having a doula is a wonderful way to help you have an enjoyable birth. Doulas can assist moms in any birthing situation, from moms who want an un-medicated birth, moms who plan on epidurals to moms with planned cesarean births. Each doula has different training and specialties, so interview different doulas to find one that matches your needs!
