The birth doula contributes to modern perinatal care to improve the experience of the person giving birth in a positive way. Research shows that people who use a birth doula are: less likely to need a C-section or painkillers.
Birth support and assistance
Birth support translates into two types of support: Physical support, consists of proposing ideas for positions for comfort and the progress of labour, intersecting with practical comfort measures such as comforting touch, counter-pressure, breathing techniques and other techniques. The skilled hands and positioning tools of a doula can often help an ill-positioned baby work its way through the pelvis and into the arms of the birthing parent. Emotional Support helps families feel supported, easing the emotional experience of birth and also helping to create space where labor hormones can work best. Whether a birth is completely unmedicated or medically very complex, every family can benefit from support and connection at this tender and incredible time in their lives.
