Women in Childbirth - Become A Doula!
A dou-WHAT, you may ask?
A doula, also known as a labor
assistant, is someone who supports women during birth. Studies have
shown that the presence of a doula can decrease the rate of
c-sections by 50% and shorten the length of labor by 25%.
Itís amazing what a little support can do!
