WHY HIRE A DOULA?
In the Dutch midwifery system midwives, nurses and doctors don’t stay with you throughout the whole birth; they’re more focused on the medical side of the delivery. I however, am focused on you and your partner’s constant well being and I am the only professional that will give you the continuous support you will need during labour.
This will make the birth of your baby go more easily, with less pain and stress and therefore less medical interventions. And that of course is my main wish and goal for you as a doula!
The advantages of my continuous support are:
- Labour can go up to 25% faster
- There is less need for medical pain relief (In general: 33%, with me present: 8%)
- Less interventions (C-section rate in general: 17%, with me present: 6%)
And apart from this, young parents look back on the birth of their baby with a better feeling because they were supported in a personal way. This can have a long-term positive effect on your relationship and the overall bonding with your baby.
