World Doula Week

This is a week to celebrate and empower the work doulas all around the world are doing. 
I want to highlight just how I am impacting physiological birth, supporting families physically and emotional, and improving the health of women, newborns and families right here in Central Illinois.

You will be seeing posts this week about the benefits of having a ‪#‎doula‬ supported birth which include:
Reduction in Cesarean births
Shorter labors
Reduction in use of pain medication
Increase in breastfeeding success
Increase in satisfaction of Mother's birth experience
Reduction of postpartum mood disorders
Increase of new parents’ confidence in the care of their newborn
