Doulas are professional caregivers for any or all stages of pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. They are trained in physical and emotional support, and can play a huge role – virtually or in-person – in helping women have healthy pregnancies and positive birth experiences.
Numerous medical studies show that doulas have a positive impact on pregnancy outcomes. Having a doula lowers the chances of both preterm birth and C-section, shortens labor times, and reduces the need for pain medication.Read More About Doulas
