What’s so great about a Doula anyway??

Not only do many people not know what a Doula is, even more people don’t know how beneficial a Doula can be! The statistics are astounding!¬†Women who use a doula are…

  • 28% less likely to have a cesarean section
  • 31% less likely to need synthetic oxytocin to speed up labor
  • 9% less likely to use any pain medication
  • 34% less likely to rate their childbirth experience negatively

And that’s just to name a few! Studies have also shown that using a doula shortens labor by 40 minutes (might not sound like much, but it is to a laboring Mom!) and their babies were less likely to have low Apgar scores at birth.

So if you’re on the fence about hiring a Doula, do your research, interview a few, and find the one right one FOR YOU!
