Doula Day: Doula Speed Dating THIS Saturday

Do you know that women who hire a doula are more likely to be satisfied with their birth experience?

Numerous clinical studies have found that a doula’s presence at birth

tends to result in shorter labors with fewer complications

reduces negative feelings about one’s childbirth experience

reduces the need for pitocin (a labor-inducing drug), forceps or vacuum extraction and cesareans

reduces the mother’s request for pain medication and/or epidurals

Research shows parents who receive support can:

Feel more secure and cared for

Are more successful in adapting to new family dynamics

Have greater success with breastfeeding

Have greater self-confidence

Have less postpartum depression

Do you want to meet some local doulas?

Come out to the Tallahassee Doula Co-op Speed Dating Event this Saturday, July 16 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at Learning Express

Choosing a doula is an important decision, and scheduling appointments with different people is a lot of work. The Tallahassee Doula Co-op has made it so much easier to meet these local doulas and learn more about their services.

These fabulous ladies are ready to help you be in control of your pregnancy and birth. Whether you choose one of them or not, they just want to help you make the best decisions for your pregnancy.
