Mother's Advocate Videos- Day 4
Today's clip is about the value of continuous labor support. It's one of my favorite ones in our series, because that's what I do. A doula is someone who stays with the laboring mom from when she's called until the baby is born and nursing.
Some of the good things that come from having a doula are:
- reduced risk of having a surgical birth
- less risk of postpartum depression
- better satisfaction with the birth expereince
- more sucessful breastfeeding
