Columbia Center is the first and only hospital in Wisconsin to have birth doulas on staff. Birth doulas provide you with emotional and physical support to complement the care you receive from your nurse.
Studies have shown that a doula’s presence during birth significantly increases a mother’s satisfaction with her birth experience. That’s why Columbia Center pays 75% of the cost of doula services making it affordable for families at a fee of $75. Since the program began in 2003, the Columbia Center doulas have offered that little extra TLC to hundreds of families.
