That’s A Good Question

Someone asked me the other day, “Why WOULDN’T someone want a doula at their birth?”
I have a couple guesses, but honestly I don’t know. I’ve even had women know I’m a doula, seem very interested in me attending, but eventually decide against having a doula.
Various research studies show that women with doulas experience less pain, have fewer interventions, and are less likely to have a C-section.
However, doulas are still relatively new to the scene in America. Many women don’t even know who they are, what they do, or how to find one.

So, I’m asking you–why wouldn’t you want a doula at your birth?
