👉👉...continuous one-to-one emotional support provided by support personnel, such as a doula, is associated with improved outcomes for a birthing person in labor.


👉👉 a birthing person who received continuous support was less likely to have a cesarean birth or a newborn with a low 5-minute Apgar score 1. Continuous support for a laboring woman that is provided by a nonmedical person also has a modest positive effect on shortening the duration of labor and improving the rate of spontaneous birth.”
