Why Hire a Doula?

Research has shown that having a doula alongside you during the birth process can lead to:
50% reduction of caesarean     
25% shorter labour                                 
60% reduction in epidural request      
30% reduction in analgesia used
40% reduction in forceps delivery

Findings from "Mothering the Mother" Klaus, Kennell & Klaus, 1993
 
 6 weeks after birth, mothers who had doulas were:
 
- less Anxious and Depressed
- confident with baby
- more satisfied with partner                      
    (71% vs. 30%)
- more likely to be breastfeeding
   (52% vs. 29%)



                                                        These statistics appear in “A Doula Makes the Difference” by Nugent in Mothering Magazine

 
 
It will be a good investment towards what should be the happiest days in your life!
