"Just as a women's heart knows how to pump, her lungs to fill with air, and her hand to pull back from fire, so too does her body know how to birth."

- benefits of continuous labour support -
"...data indicates that one of the most effective tools to improve labour and delivery outcomes is continuous presence of support personnel, such as a Doula. A Cochrane meta-analysis of 12 trials and more than 15,000 women demonstrated that the presence of continuous one-on-one support was associated w/ improved patient satisfaction and statistically significant reduction in Cesarean delivery. Given that there are no associated measurable harms, this resource is probably underutilized."
