Doulas provide physical and emotional support for a woman and her partner during labor and birth. They offer help and advice for comfort measures during labor: breathing, relaxation, movement, and positioning. Multiple studies have shown that women laboring with a doula require less medical intervention, use epidurals at a lower rate, and have a lower cesarean section rate.
Doulas also provide LACTATION SUPPORT for breastfeeding mothers in the delivery room. A doula is a wonderful companion for your labor journey, whether you choose a medicated or non-medicated approach. They can truly help you have a more “conscious” and “holistic” pregnancy and birth experience. We believe labor is an opportunity for women to learn about themselves and discover the strength and wisdom inherent in their bodies.
