A birth doula is a trained professional who is experienced in childbirth and provides advice, information and support before, during and just after childbirth. Much evidence suggests that having a doula present at your birth improves birth outcomes. Studies show that when a doula is present for a birth, women are less likely to need medical interventions including; the need for pitocin, cesarean sections, and the use of pain medication. Overall, women who have a doula are more likely to view their birthing experience as positive.
