“Providing doula support to birthing people is a risk-free endeavor, and it’s highly effective for improving health outcomes such as decreasing your risk for Cesarean or forceps or vacuum delivery. People who use a doula report experiencing less pain and anxiety during labor. They’re also much more likely to be highly satisfied with their birth experience.
“In one study that looked at giving couples a doula, they found that all of the partners rated their experience with a doula as positive or extremely positive. So, typically, both the birthing people and their partners are highly satisfied with the help they got from their doula.”
