The statistics speak for themselves!

“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.”

John H. Kennell

Having a doula with you during labour has been shown to:

•  Shorten first-time labour by an average of 2 hours
•  Reduce the need for pain medication by 36%
•  Reduce instrumental delivery by 57%
•  Reduce the chance of caesarean section by 51%
•  Increase success in initiating breastfeeding and keeping going
•  Increase satisfaction with the birth for both mum and her partner
