In Teresa Bailey’s and Jan Mallaks article “Heart and Hands Doula Service” they go into detail about how every pregnant woman should be able to have the dream birth every woman would love to have. They explain how the effects of a doulas support increase birthing experiences and that the effects on labor interact and coincide with one another having to deal with the way a mother wants their birth to be. From greater satisfaction with childbirth, the babies having shorter hospital stays and fewer admissions to special care nurseries, all the way to the cost of obstetrical care being dramatically reduced, Doulas Guide to Birthing Your Way shows that the effects on the mother, and on the baby as well as the effects on the heath care system go hand in hand with how every mother wants their birth experience to be.
