Studies have proven that having a doula present for birth can have incredible benefits. These include shorter labor times, decreased rates of cesarean section, increased confidence in mothers, decreased chance of medication during labor, decreased rates of instrumental delivery, and increased rates of spontaneous childbirth - just to name a few! A doula is a source of ongoing support through labor. Special training, as well as professional experience, enable a doula to provide support through all kinds of birth experiences. Women having inductions, cesarean sections, unmedicated births, and everything in between can all benefit from the presence of a doula!
