Hi,Julie here. I want to talk a little more about the benefits of having a doula. My husband LOVES doulas really, he does; it’s not just because he is married to one, either. Our first doula brought him a breakfast burrito, our second a Mt. Dew, and our third gently rubbed my back while he took some time for self care, aka, eating pizza. Birth partners need energy, too!
Aside from feeding him, there are so many other reasons that he loves doulas. If you listened to special episode 05 on our podcast, you will know that Nick & Ric, mine and Meagan’s husbands, respectively, are sold on the doula model for five main reasons:
- Doulas saved them money.
- Doulas helped move our births along quicker.
- Doulas allowed them to pay attention to US and worry less about the logistics.
- Doulas made them aware of things they had no idea they needed to know.
- Doulas improved our birth outcomes and satisfaction with our birth experiences.
If you don’t believe me, that’s ok! I have some science ready to back up those claims. Here are 5 myths about doulas and the facts you need to know.
