There is a myth out there that doulas only support unmedicated birth. Doulas support all types of birth and moms planning to use an epidural for pain management absolutely can benefit from the services of a doula.
Really helps moms see what the concept of laboring out of the bed looks like. Too bad bed labor is what we see constantly on tv as the norm. It's not normal! Get out of bed and try some of these labor positions you'll be glad you did!
A doula's support works! With a doula by your side, statistics shows that laboring women have: shorter labors/ reduction in epidural use/ reduction in cesareans/ reduction in pitocin use/ reduction in forceps use.
