*From the book, Mothering the Mother, Marshall H. Klaus, M.D., John H. Kennell, M.D., and Phyllis H. Klaus, M. Ed., C.S.W., 1993.
Research also shows that couples report better bonding and women are more likely to have a positive birth memory with a doula. One study showed that the doula's presence in the birthing room alone betters birth outcomes. When she is actively attending the laboring woman, birth outcomes are statistically even better. Some studies have looked at the differences between a doula and other medical professionals, such as nurses and midwives, for whatever reason, doula care has better birth outcomes with fewer interventions than other professionals providing that kind of support.
