Why do you need
The word "Doula" is a greek word that means "the one who serves".
In ancient times, women were giving birth at home and were often attended by a midwife. Laboring women were also nurtured and cared for by a network of female family members, neighbors and friends during the birthing process and the weeks after baby was born. However, in our modern society, continuous support during and after labor has often become the exception rather than the routine.
Here is what the research says about continuous support during labour, and the benefits of having a doula by your side during childbirth, and the weeks after your baby arrives.
BENEFITS OF DOULA CARE DURING LABOR AND BIRTH:
31% decrease in risk of negative birth experience
39% decrease in risk of cesarean birth
10% decrease in the use of pain relief medication
15% increase of spontaneous vaginal birth
41 min shorter labor
BENEFITS OF DOULA CARE DURING POSTPARTUM:
Increase rate of breastfeeding at 6 weeks postpartum
Reduced anxiety at 6 weeks postpartum
Increase confidence in parenting skills
Claire made my birth's experience a positive and memorable one.
During the birth, Claire was there from the beginning to the end. She was very supportive. She encouraged me and helped me stay focused and calm. She also helped me plan my birth and prepare for this important and unique moment. She is a competent professional and was an invaluable source of information and support during my pregnancy. I am very grateful to have had her by my side.
