Doula Birthing Companions

Doula Birthing Companions

An advocate of 'natural birthing', 35-year-old broadcaster Síle Seoige used the services of a doula for the birth of her first baby.

Writing in her online baby diary, Seoige revealed the decision was due to studies which showed that having a doula as a member of the birth team can decrease the overall caesarean rate, length of labour, use of oxytocin and requests for an epidural.

Joining us to discuss this growing trend is doula Jen Crawford and mother of one Ruth Herbert, who used Jen's doula services for the birth of her son Mark.
