Role of a Doula and benefits:
A birth doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, & informational support during labor, birth & early postpartum. In six clinical trials Drs. Klause & Kennell showed that the presence of a doula did the following: shortened first-time labor by an average of 2 hours, decreased the need for pain medication, decreased the chance of cesarean by 50%, helped  birth partners participate with more confidence and increased the chance of  successful  breastfeeding!
