Tooele Midwifery Doulas
What is a Doula?
Tooele Midwifery offers doula services to families desiring hospital birth, home birth, or birth center birth. Our doulas are trained to assist families during childbirth. Families who have a doula attend their birth are more likely to have a more positive birth experience. Studies have shown that having a doula as a member of the birth team decreases the overall cesarean rate by 50%, the length of labor by 25%, the use of oxytocin by 40%, and requests for an epidural by 60%.
