Advantages of a doula birth

Having a doula birth can really make a huge difference. First of all, studies have shown that having a doula can actually effectively reduce the number of medical intervention from Cesarian to drugs for induction and for pain control. Furthermore, having a doula there is like having a total consistency of care. Remember that when you go to the hospital, you might have one, two, three nurses that you have never met before. And your doctor, when they come, they come at the very end. Having a doula there is just to always have somebody that you consistently trust that will not abandon you, will never leave, will be with you and will make sure that she contains, maintains the space for you to have the birth that you have chosen, that you want, not that she wants and not that anybody else wants.
