Benefits of 1:1 Labor Support with Doula

Repost from @doctor_midwife

This about being capable.

.

Your body knows exactly what it’s doing, and quiet as it’s kept you’re going to have a baby either way. Even when you’ve been underestimated.

.

What you need is support to do what you are already capable of. You do not need a hinderance in your natural born abilities to have a baby. You know that right?

.

Evidence is old, solid, clear and irrefutable ➡️ 1:1 labor support ⬇️

.

🌸Increases your likelihood of a achieving a normal spontaneous vaginal delivery

.

🌸 It increases the likelihood of you having a satisfactory birth experience

.

🌸 Pregnant people are less likely to have any pain medication in labor

.

🌸 Folks with 1:1 labor support are also less likely to have epidurals

.

🌸 There’s decreased use of vacuums or forceps-assistance at their births when people have continuous labor support

.

🌸1:1 labor support has been shown to decrease the length of labor

.

🌸Babies born to those with 1:1 continuous labor support are less likely to have poor APGAR scores at birth.

.

.

☝🏾 And no, your labor and delivery nurse is not your 1:1 support. Neither is your doctor or your midwife, and prolly not even your partner 💁🏽‍♀️


Do what you want though.

.

Let me remind you though that one thing is for sure, that baby is coming out either way.
