Benefits of a Labor Support Nurse/Doula
When you combine a perinatal nurse and a labor doula you are equipped with a powerful resource for your labor support. Nurses develop keen senses to recognize variations in fetal well-being and variables disturbing the progression of labor. These are skills that follow your nurse as your labor doula.
