Doula Support Good for Mom and Baby

The birth of your baby is a rare experience, and one that should be exciting, energizing, and peaceful. For too many modern mothers, it is a busy time involving a host of nurses, doctors, and others bustling about the labor and delivery room. It may seem crazy to suggest intentionally adding another person to the scene—but there’s one person you’ll definitely want to have at your baby’s birth: your doula. Doulas can provide essential support at this important time, not only helping you feel better emotionally but improving birth outcomes, too! Learn about how doula support during birth lowers the risk of epidural and cesarean section, leading to better health outcomes and breastfeeding for mothers and baby. Listen in as Marie talks with Teresa Bailey, CD, IBCLC, doula and co-coordinator with Pittsburgh-based “Hearts and Hands Doula Services” and author (with Jan Mallak) of “Doulas’ Guide to Birthing Your Way.”
