Why have a 

Doula 

It is possible that your doula could be the only person in the room who is 100% committed to you and how everything is going for you! That is not to say that your care team is not committed however in your entire care team you doula is the ones who primary focus is YOU from the first contraction to hours after the delivery your doula will be there with your next to you and empowering you. 
Studies have been done that prove the positive obstetric results from having a doula;
More likely to have spontaneous vaginal birth
Less likely to have epidurals 
Less likely to report dissatisfaction
Shorter labors 
Less likely to have a cesarean or instrumental vaginal birth
Less likely to require regional analgesia or a baby with a low five-minute Apgar score

NCBI study proves that continuous support was most effective when the provider was neither part of the hospital staff nor the woman's social network
