World Doula Week Giveaway

World Doula Week

Central Massachusetts birth doula Natasha Trapp

For more information on doulas, I recommend this article from Evidence Based Birth.

It's World Doula Week! 

The purpose of World Doula Week is to empower doulas all over the world to improve physiological, social, emotional, and psychological health of women, newborns and families in birth and in the postpartum period. The World Doula Week events will take place all over the world during the same week, stating the benefits of the presence of doulas in birth and in the postpartum period: 

  • Reduces the incidence of c-sections      

  • May shorten the length of labor      

  • Reduces epidural and analgesic requests      

  • Increases breastfeeding initiation and continuation     

  • Increases mother’s satisfaction of birth experience      

  • Can reduce the incidence of postpartum mood disorders     

  • Increases new parents’ confidence in the care of their newborn
