"Birth is an opportunity to transcend.
To arise above what we are accustomed to,
reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with,
and to see not only what we are truly made of,
but the strength we can access in and through birth."
"Women who have used a Doula are
more satisfied with their birth experience,
feel more confident in their ability to mother,
bond faster with their newborn,
are less likely to have postpartum depression,
and are more likely to breastfeed"
~Klaus, Kennel, and Klaus 2001
