5 Reasons to Consider Doula Services

Scroll down to learn more.

1. Knowledge and Resources

There are so many texts and opinions on pregnancy, birth, and parenting. A doula can help guide you to the most helpful resources for you and your desired birth.

2. Support

A doula is there to support you and your partner. From giving your partner snacks, to massaging mom and wiping the sweat from her brow, your doula is there for you from active labor until your baby nurses.

3. Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding rates increase with the support of a doula. Breastfeeding is well-documented as strengthening the bond between mother and child.

4. A Peaceful Start

With the support of a doula, mom’s oxytocin is flowing and babies choose to enter this world much more quickly and peacefully, decreasing the chances of “failure to progress”, inductions, epidurals, pitocin, and cesareans.

5. Your Ideal Birth

Childbirth is big business in this country. A doula will ensure that your needs are met and that you are not persuaded to make unwanted choices in the hospital.
