How doula support impacts outcomes

Doulas are nonclinical trained professionals who can provide emotional, physical, and informational support during pregnancy, delivery, and after childbirth. Research shows that working with a doula can reduce C-section rates, decrease complications, and increase satisfaction with birth experiences. But because doula support is rarely covered by insurance, accessing care can be challenging.

While there are challenges to overcome, there is an opportunity for health plans to expand access to doula care and improve outcomes, especially for at-risk populations. In this whitepaper, we explore the following:

  • How prenatal and birth doula care can improve birth outcomes
  • The role postpartum doulas can play in improving postpartum mental health
  • Strategies for seamlessly integrating doula support with health plan coverage
