Doula assisted births create a more positive birth experience.

Doula care also REDUCES:

  • Pain during labor & delivery
  • The length of labor
  • The need for pain medication
  • The use of interventions such as Pitocin to induce labor, and the use of vacuum or forceps to assist in delivery
  • C-section and episiotomy rates

Babies whose mothers choose a doula:

  • Have lower rates of fetal distress
  • Less likely to be admitted to neonatal intensive care units
  • Tend to be less fussy than babies without doula support
  • Have happier, more confident and content mothers
