Doulas.  The benefits are incredible!  When you involve a doula in your birth, the length of labour is shorter, there are fewer Cesarean births, fewer interventions, and less use of pain medication.  Why?  How?  A doula creates a safe, supported space for a woman and her partner to go through labour together.  A woman who feels safe and supported feels less fear, which lowers pain, which just helps labour to progress better.  And after baby is born, women who use the support of a doula have less postpartum depression, and a higher rate of breastfeeding success.  Doulas just help.  I can’t wait to help you!
