Through holistic care, doulas provide for the full range (emotional, social, esteem, and physical) needs that a birthing woman and her family experiences during the birthing process.
Research now support improved results in birth with the presence of a trained doula as a part of the birth team. Evidence-based care is a driving principle in your training to learn best practices of labor support.
When doctors, midwives, nurses, and doulas communicate openly about a woman’s needs during labor, outcomes improve. Being able to communicate comfortably in any environment (especially a medical one) is key for the doula to confidently complete her work.
Hand-in-hand with holistic care comes the ability to identify the specific and wide-ranging needs of an expectant mother. Knowing what to look for and when to look for it are at the core of effective assessment.
