Find a Doula for Your Natural Birth!
Kopa Birth® has launced a new program to partner with labor doulas to further help you have a positive, natural birth! All of our local doula partners are certified doulas and are familiar with the tools you have learned in your Kopa Birth® childbirth class. Consider working with one of these doulas to help support you and your partner during your natural birth!
What are the benefits of inviting a labor doula to my birth?
A doula is a trained labor assistant that provides emotional and physical support during childbirth. Studies have found that women who receive continuous, one-on-one support during labor and delivery are*:
1. More likely to have a vaginal birth that starts without intervention
2. Less likely to use pain medication in labor
3. More satisfied with their births
4. Have shorter labors
5. Less likely to have a cesarean
In addition to the support of your partner, labor doulas can play a valuable role in helping you have a safe and happy birth experience. Way to go, doulas!
