Research & findings

Did you know?

Doulas reduce interventions during labour

Studies examining the impact of continuous support doulas report significant reductions in cesarean births, instrumental vaginal births, need for oxytocin augmentation, and shortened durations of labor. Continuous support also has been associated with higher newborn Apgar scores (greater than 7) and overall higher satisfaction by mothers with the birthing process.

Doulas decrease the need for clinical procedures during birth

The evidence suggests that it is likely more than the emotional, physical, and informational support doulas give to women during the birthing process that accounts for the reduced need for clinical procedures during labor and birth, fewer birth complications, and more satisfying experiences during labor, birth, and postpartum argue that the modern hospital birthing process tends to be highly interventionist, taking away decision making from mothers. This results in many unwanted and, in many cases, unwarranted procedures.

Doulas reduce the risk of depression

Relative to women that give birth without support Doulas care, women who received doula care had 57.5% lower odds of postpartum depression/postpartum anxiety. Think about it like this - research finds that women who give birth without Doula care are nearly 60% more likely to experience depression.

Upright positioning offers a range of benefits

Being upright during labour and birth can increase the available space within your pelvis by 28-30% giving more room for baby to be born. The length of the first stage of labour, between 3-10 centimetres can be significantly less when you remain upright, active and mobile. Upright positions reduce the duration of the second stage (pushing stage) of labour.
