With the rise of Shaken Baby Syndrome which kills on average 1-4 babies in the United States daily mortality and thousands injured yearly, I believe it is important for the birth support team and hospitals to acknowledge that not enough is being done to educate parents on how to prevent such tragic events. This is why more hospitals need Doula’s on staff, to help the parents in initial bonding and education of techniques or tricks on baby care and soothing… I believe a DOULA’s role isn’t just birth, but also in service of transitioning to parenthood..
