"An experienced knowledgeable Doula and Educator will bring you beyond any research you can do that you spend hours and hours and months doing on your own. I can explain the pitfalls. I have seen it. The reality is that I’ve seen many things over the last 10 years. I’ve seen women pushed into procedures because it’s policy and the politics of the hospital system rather than what the evidence provides. This is beyond the checklist of a birth-plan. I’m going to teach you to advocate for yourselves and navigate the hospital and challenging system as it is now, while helping you to cultivate a good relationship with your chosen practitioner."
- Doula Lauren
The research from the NIH (National Institute for Health) shows that having a skilled Doula not simply the desire for vaginal birth, "empowers a laboring mother to communicate her needs and perceptions and actualize her dream of a healthy, positive birth experience"
Why risk this day to an unskilled Doula when you can be assured of high-quality services designed to promote the best outcomes for mother and baby from a skilled experienced Doula?
