Welcoming your support team
Whether it’s your first baby or you’re adding a brother or sister to the family, having a safe, healthy and positive labor experience is what every family wants.
One option for many women and their partners is to include a doula as part of their care team.
A doula is a trained, non-medical, professional who nurtures, supports and offers guidance for families throughout labor and delivery, and after the birth. Doulas offer a wide range of services, including help with breastfeeding as well as postpartum care.
Studies show a doula’s continuous labor support benefits mom and baby in many ways. It can often mean:
• A more satisfying birth experience
• Less need for pain medications
• Less likelihood of needing a cesarean delivery
• Shorter labor
At Luminis Health, we support the inclusion of doulas as part of your care team through pregnancy, labor and delivery.
