birth doula support


Why? Doulas provide emotional, physical, and partner support, as well as evidence-based information and advocacy. Research shows using a doula can result in:

  • decreased use of Pitocin
  • reduced chance of cesarean birth
  • reduced use of any pain medication
  • decreased duration of labor
  • more likely to rate childbirth experience positively
