The Benefits of Hiring a Doula
Doulas aren't simply an accessorized role to the “natural” birth experience, and aren't limited to those in our culture who "can afford" one. No matter how you choose to birth your baby, doulas are an important member of your birth team. Our role stems from the ancestral tradition of women supporting women, to help you find balance in the ways that you need.
If you have continuous labor support (that is, someone who is committed to giving you one on one support), you are statistically more likely to have better outcomes and your baby is more likely to have better outcomes!
