Labor & Postpartum Doula
A doula’s presence at birth:
tends to result in shorter labors with fewer complications
reduces the need for pitocin, forceps or vacuum extraction, and cesarean sections
reduces the mother’s request for pain medication and/or epidurals
"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers-strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength."
-Barbara Katz Rothman
