can i deliver babies yet?
There’s really good data documenting that continuous emotional labor support leads to positive birth outcomes, with the strongest effects coming from someone who has specialized training and who is not a family member, friend, or employee of the hospital—meaning someone like a doula,” says Katy Backes Kozhimannil, an Assistant Professor at the Division of Health Policy and Management at the University of Minnesota. In the 2012 study she’s referring to, women who had continuous support experienced shorter labors; were more likely to have spontaneous vaginal births; and were less likely to report dissatisfaction, have a caesarean section, or a have baby with a low five-minute Apgar score, an indication of a newborn’s health (based on appearance, pulse, grimace/cry, activity and respiration) that ranges from zero to 10.
