DoulasA wonderful addition to the birthing process is working with a doula. A doula is also often referred to as a labor coach or assistant. Certified doulas do not provide any kind of medical care. Doulas work to reduce your stress level while in labor so as to produce a delivery with fewer complications and problems. They do provide emotional and physical support for the laboring woman and her family and/or post-partum care of the mother and baby. Doula care has been shown to improve outcomes for both moms and babies in many studies.
