Doula Services with Eden's Promise

Tammy is a CAPPA certified Labor and Delivery Doula with Eden's Promise.  The primary role of a doula is to provide emotional and informational support during pregnancy and childbirth. 

 

Immediate benefits of Doula support include:

*Length of labor reduced by 26% - 50%

*Oxytocin use reduced by 40%

*Use of narcotics reduced by 30%

*Use of forceps reduced by  30%

*Epidurals reduced by 60%

 

Long-term benefits include:

*Improved breastfeeding

*Increased time spent with baby

*Decreased postpartum depression

 

Analysis of studies indicate that the greatest benefits by far come from a doula with training who is not a member of the birthing woman's social network.
