START YOUR JOURNEY AS A DOULA OR CHILDBIRTH EDUCATOR!

A recent Cochrane Review titled "Continuous Support for Women During Childbirth" showed a very high number of positive birth outcomes when a doula was present.
THE BENEFITS OF HAVING A BIRTH DOULA INCLUDE:
  • reduced need for pain-relief medications
  • reduced need for a cesarean birth
  • reduced length of labor by 25%
  • reduced use of synthetic oxytocin by 40%
  • reduced requests for an epidural by 60%
 
Women also reported having a more positive childbirth experience and the overall cesarean rate decreased by 50%
