What is a doula and why should I hire one?

Doulas provide four key areas of support: informational, emotional, physical, and advocacy.

Evidenced-based birthing supports doula work. On average, people who use doulas:

  • Are more likely to experience vaginal birth over a cesarian (source)

  • Experience shorter labor (source)

  • Have newborns with higher Apgar scores (source)

  • Are less likely to have an epidural (source)

  • Report lower stress during labor (source)

  • Report higher satisfaction with overall birth experience (source)
