How can my family benefit from having a labor doula?
Doulas can have a positive impact on one of the most important days in your life and help you navigate through everything to help your labor move along.
Doulas do not replace a loved ones involvement, in fact, it makes for a great team:
*Your loved one knows you best and your doula knows birth best and specializes in coping strategies, position changes, and comfort measures.
*It can be comforting to know you’re in trusted hands if they grab a meal, take a rest, or tend to other children/responsibilities at home.
*Doulas also can help partners feel more involved and give suggestions on how they can best help you at each stage of labor.
The world health organization (WHO) and other sources, now recommend that all birthing persons have a doula since it’s been shown to:
*Reduce the rate of cesarean births and increased chances of spontaneous vaginal birth
*Reduce the need for medications or interventions
*Reduce duration of labor
*Result in families reporting a more positive experience overall in birth and postpartum when they had this continued support.
Becky helped answer so many questions for me during the postpartum period. I didn’t realize how many questions I would have about breastfeeding, naps, and even activities I could do with my baby! Becky always responded with a number of options and made me feel confident with being a new mom.
Although for my second child, I was having a planned cesarean birth, Becky helped me discover that I could still have a positive family centered experience with birth preferences and comfort measures to make it a very personalized experience in and out of the OR. She had great handouts and resources ready for me before I even asked!
