A doula is present to provide both physical and emotional support to the mother and birthing partner(s). This may include, but is not limited to, massage, positioning, breathing and movement techniques. While you will have either a doctor or midwife and possibly nurses available for medical support, they often have other responsibilities and/or patients that will share their focus. A doula's only focus is her client.
Many studies have shown that having a doula can reduce the length of labor, use of induction hormones and rates of assisted delivery and cesareans.
