The most ideal time to hire a doula is as early in your pregnancy as possible. This allows you and your doula to get acquainted with each other.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your pregnancy, fertility, or contraception issues, this is where OB-GYNS are best suited for. Doulas on the other hand, focus on the mental, physical, and emotional needs of the mother. Doulas have no medical training or experience and cannot be used as a substitute for a midwife, OB-GYN, or nurse but they can work as a part of the team.
Doulas are associated with improved maternal health outcomes, greater satisfaction with birth experiences, have fewer caesareans and requests for medical intervention.

  • Double the overall caesarean rate
  • 33% increase in length of labor
  • 67% increase in oxytocin use

2 ½ times more requests for epidurals

A doula does not make nor judge decisions for expectant clients. The do not intervene in their clinical care. Doulas only provide informational and emotional support while respecting your decisions.

A responsible doula compliments and enhances the partner in their supportive role rather than acting as a replacement. A doula should be both encouraging to the mother and her partner to become more involved in the birth, making them both feel comfortable. When a couple works together during the birth process, they are able to handle the challenges of early parenthood thus creating an easy transition into parenthood.
A doula is most effective for all kinds of births such natural, water, or caesarean. Each doula also brings her own tools and methods such as the following:

  • Positioning suggestions
  • Massage and various touch methods
  • Aromatherapy
  • Hydrotherapy (Water for comfort during labor, and/or water-birth)
  • Create space for your partner and recommendations to help partner to offer support
  • A calm, reassuring presence who trusts the birth process the client chooses

An epidural is merely one of the tools that are available to laboring women. While an epidural can relieve pain, it does not provide support in a way that doula’s do.

A doula can be your new set of hands, eyes, and ears to help you better prepare for your upcoming surgical birth. Doulas can help you get answers to your questions and formulate a birth plan.  The doula joins you at the time of admission and is there to ease your fears, walk you through next steps and help make this a positive birth experience.
Prior to birth, a doula provides information to her clients about general birth processes, a variety of comfort measures and coping skills, and common procedures. The doula lays aside any preconceived ideas she may have and supports the mother in the way she chooses to labor.
Each person involved in the care of a laboring woman impacts her physical and emotional well-being. Doctors, nurses, and midwives are primarily responsible for the physical health and safety of the mother and baby. Many health care providers find that working and having a doula makes room for calmer, more satisfied women in birth, and better outcomes overall.
