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 birth 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.
