Reduce your chances of having a C section by 28%

With the support of a Skilled Birth Companion

Benefits Of Sahodari During Labour & Child Support

Studies have shown that anxious and frightened women experience a higher level of discomfort, pain, negative birth experience and at times higher rates of C-section birth.  

However, having a skilled companion at this time to offer the much needed assurance, physical, emotional and educational support can help women have a safe, memorable and empowering birthing experience. This is what a Sahodari is all about! A ’Labour & Birth” Sahodari is trained in non-medical procedures like breathing techniques, comfort measures, relaxation processes, massage, emotional support,  breastfeeding support etc to help women to be feel empowered and in- control of their birthing process. 

Benefits of having a Sahodari during labour and birth:

Research has shown the following benefits with skilled companions during labour & birth:

  • Less likely to use pain relief medications and less likelihood of Caesarean birth.
  • Higher chances of spontaneous vaginal birth
  • More positive childbirth experience
  • Decrease length of labour
  • Decreased request for epidural
  • Reduced stress and anxiety for the mother during labour
  • Reduced stress for the spouse and family
