My 2009 Hypno-Doula Statistics

This is the fourth of 4 posts.  Each birth is unique and I don’t think of my doula clients as numbers by any means.  But I am also fascinated by numbers, so I enjoy doing my stats each year.  I am going to post my overall Doula and then Hypnobabies Students Stats.  Then I will also post my stats for doula clients and Hypnobabies Students for 2009.

This post is for all my Doula Clients – some did the Hypnobabies Home Study instead of taking my live course.  But they ALL did Hypnobabies.

I have had 10 wonderful doula clients give birth this year.  My goal was to attend 3 births.  I totally met THAT goal.  2 were planned cesareans, so I only attended 8.

Cesarean Rate: 30%  (If I take out my 3 moms this year that had breech babies -what are the chances of THAT? 2 in the same week even-  then it is 0%.)

The rest of the statistics don’t include the cesarean moms.

So of the moms who had vaginal births looking at epidural/un-medicated:

100%  un-medicated

0%  epidurals

Stats of vaginal birth moms regarding comfort:

50%  completely comfortable

25%  some manageable discomfort

25% had discomfort during active birthing time (these Mom’s had baby’s in odd positions that caused discomfort.  Both moms stayed calm and relaxed during their birth)

It was a great year as a doula.   I enjoyed every birth I attended and learned a lot too!
