Today, more partners play an active role in the birth process.
However, some partners prefer to enjoy the delivery without having to stand in as the labor coach.
By having a doula as a part of the birth team, the partner is free to do whatever he/she chooses. Doulas can encourage the partner to use comfort techniques and can step in if he/she wants a break. Having a doula allows the psartner to support his partner emotionally during labor and birth and to also enjoy the experience without the added pressure of trying to remember everything he learned in childbirth class!
