In Improving Birth

NPR reports on a study comparing outcomes between Medicaid-funded singleton births in 1935 women having doula care and 65,147 similar women who did not. After adjustment for maternal age, race/ethnicity, diabetes, and hypertension, women having doula care had 22% lower odds of having a preterm birth and 44% lower odds of having a cesarean if the baby was full term. (Doula care didn’t affect the cesarean rate in preterm deliveries.)
