Why Use A Doula?
Doulas have been shown to greatly benefit birth in the following ways:
- Natural Vaginal Delivery – 43% increase (no medication or forceps)
- Caesarean Rate – 50% decrease
- Epidural Requests – 60% decrease
- Pain Medication – 30% decrease
- Length of Labor – 25% decrease*

I was a part of the 18 month Kaiser Doula Research Project, which helped to reinforce my beliefs in the great results of doula-assisted births.
I want every family to have a good birth memory. Hopefully when your birth is done, you will have a cherished memory.
