There are several advantages to having a doula-assisted birth:
• A doula ensures your comfort and offers encouragement in the best posible ways to assist you in the birth of your child. She often comes with experience, knowledge, and understanding in ways others may not be able to achieve.
• She acts as a mediator between you and the midwife, doctors, and/or nurses.
• Having a doula can reduce your chance of a Cesarean by 60%.
