What exactly is a doula?

Here’s the scoop:

A doula is a professional birth expert who helps you navigate your way through your pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum period.

You have a trainer for the gym.

You hire a travel guide to show you the ins and outs of life in a foreign land.

Maybe you have a life coach to help you with your personal development.

Think of all the help you enlisted on your wedding day: an event planner, caterers, an officiant, the DJ – all to cultivate a memorable and enjoyable experience on that special day.

A doula is like all those people, wrapped into one birth-loving package, to make sure you have everything you need to start your parenting journey with confidence.

What are the benefits of hiring a doula?

“Evidence suggests that, in addition to regular nursing care, continuous one-to-one emotional support provided by support personnel, such as a doula, is associated with improved outcomes for women in labor.”The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG)

I’m glad you asked! The American College of OB-GYNs details the specific, evidence-based benefits of having a doula present for your labor and delivery¬†here and here.

Here’s a quick summary:

  • Shorter labors
  • Decreased need for epidurals and other medical interventions
  • Reduced rates of c-section births
  • Healthier babies (indicated by higher APGAR scores at 1 minute and 5 minutes after birth)
  • Improved satisfaction with overall birth experience
  • Substantial cost savings
