Studies about Doulas support

Studies including more than 2000 doula-supported women showed that having a doula present during labour and birth had the effect of:

* 50% reduction in the caesarean rate

* 25% shorter labour in first time mums

* 60% reduction in epidural requests

* 30% reduction in analgesia use

* 40% reduction in forceps delivery

* helping fathers participate with confidence and increases success in breast-feeding.

(Findings taken from "Mothering the Mother" by Klaus, Kennell & Klaus, 1993)

6 weeks after birth, mothers who had doulas were:   

* Less anxious and depressed

* More confident with their baby

* More satisfied with their partner (71% vs 30%)

* More likely to be breastfeeding (52% vs. 29%)
