What is a Labor Doula?

Doula is a greek word referencing to an experienced woman providing physical, emotional and informational support during  childbirth.


As your Doula

I provide continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the new parents before, during and after your birth. 


Why Should I have a Doula?

Statistically having a Doula present reduces the requests for medication, reduces the chances of cesarean section, and improves the outcome for mother and baby for a healthy natural childbirth.

The presence of a Doula during labor and childbirth can:

    *Shorten labor by 25%


    *Decrease the need for medications*

        -40% less pitocin use

        -60% fewer epidurals

        -30% reduction in other

         medications


    *Decrease the need for other

      interventions*

        -50% fewer cesareans

        -30% less use of forceps
