Why Use a Doula

From the Doula Organization of North America (DONA):

“Facing unprecedented pressures to reduce expenses, many hospitals are targeting the largest single budget item – labor costs…. An unintended consequence of nursing cutbacks may be an increased Cesarean rate.

The inability of a pared down nursing staff to provide continuous coverage to laboring mothers (has been) shown to increase the chance of a Cesarean…. Doulas clearly improve clinical and service quality; they provide an absolutely safe way to reduce Cesareans and other invasive birthing interventions.”

Coming to Term: Innovations in Safely Reducing Caesarean Rates. Medical Leadership Council, Washingtion D.C. 1996.

Right now in the United States, the Caesarean rate is about 30% of all births!
