Women supported by a doula during labor have been shown to have:

  • 60% reduction in epiduralrequests
  • 40% reduction in Pitocin use
  • 30% reduction in analgesic use

A Birth Doula

  • Recognizes birth as a key experience  the mother will remember all her life
  • Understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor
  • Stays with the woman throughout her labor
  • Provides emotional support, physical comfort and an objective viewpoint, as well as helping the woman get the information she needs to make informed decisions
  • Perceives her role as nurturing and protecting
  • Encourages the woman's partner to participate at his/her comfort level

A profoundly moving and empowering moment in the lives of women, their partner, their families.​ The single most important event of humanity ~ the creation of life.
