         Birth           Support

Birth Doula Support

Whether you plan to have a supportive partner, family member, friend or all of the above attend your birth- the addition of a skilled and experienced doula to your birth team is worth the investment. The research is clear on this: women who use doulas to support their birth achieve better outcomes.  Per a 2012 Cochrane review published by Hodnett et al., doula supported women experienced a significant decrease in the use of Pitocin, risk of C-section, use of pain meds, risk of newborns being admitted to a special care nursery, and dissatisfaction with the birth experience. Plus, their labors were shorter!
