Why hire a Doula?
Research shows that people who have birth doulas present for continuous support during labor have better outcomes in birth, not only for themselves, but also for their babies. They are "more likely to have spontaneous vaginal births and less likely to have any pain medication, epidurals, negative feelings about childbirth, vacuum or forceps-assisted births, and C-sections. In addition, their labors were shorter by about 40 minutes and their babies were less likely to have low Apgar scores at birth."*
