Aloha to you if you’re currently expecting a little treasure!
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Today, I want to invite and encourage you to book a complimentary doula consultation. You will have the opportunity to ask me questions, and I will tell you my approach to support you through your pregnancy, birth and beyond. You will always gain a bit of insight from talking with a doula, so take advantage of the phone conversation.
As a doula, I attend births at all hospitals on O’ahu or home births. Whether you’re having a vaginal delivery or a c-section, pain or no pain medication, my services are available to you. I believe that all birthing experiences can benefit from the services of a doula.
Did you know that using a doula can have a significant impact on your birthing outcomes? In their book Mothering the Mother: How a Doula Can Help You Have a Shorter, Easier and Healthier Birth, Klaus, Kennell, and Klaus (1993) reveal striking doula outcomes:
50% reduction in cesarean rate
25% shorter labor
60% reduction in epidural requests
40% reduction in pitocin use
30% reduction in analgesia use
40% reduction in forceps delivery
Those are some great stats!
I look forward to speaking with you soon. Again, to book a complimentary doula consultation, simply click here to learn more!
Blessings to you in your pregnancy,
