HealthONE - February 24, 2020

At Sky Ridge, our Labor & Delivery team works with your doula to ensure you have the best birth experience possible. Your physician and nurse will focus on your medical care, and without these clinical responsibilities, your doula is free to focus on labor coaching and other birthing techniques. Both the Sky Ridge team and your doula will work together to advocate for you and support you throughout your birthing experience.

The benefits of birthing with a doula

  • Continuous, uninterrupted support for the parent-to-be
  • Improved labor and delivery outcomes, such as shorter labor and lower C-Section rates
  • Decreased use of pain medication
  • More positive childbirth experience
