  • results in a shorter, smoother labor
  • creates a more positive birth experience

Benefits of a postpartum doula:

  • Eases transition to motherhood
  • Increases confidence in breastfeeding
  • Increases successful breastfeeding
  • Reduces postpartum depression
  • Increases parenting skills
  • Mothering the mother nurtures the family
