For the past 25 years, Klaus et al. have been observing and studying what happens when a woman provides “continuous emotional support“ during labour and delivery. To date, more than 5,000 women have been observed in 16 randomised controlled trials (RCTs) that have shown a reduction in the length of labour, a reduction in the need for anaesthesia or analgesia, a reduction in the incidence of caesarean section and more natural births.
