I'm doing some research for a presentation I'm making (actually a team effort!) to a local hospital. We're trying to get a paid doula program started. I'm looking for statistics from other hospital based doula programs. There is a lot of info out there on the benefits of having a doula. What I'm lacking is mostly detailed bottom line stuff. How these programs are affecting the hospital's numbers, budget, patient satisfaction. Also any logistical information (budget, staffing, etc.) would be helpful. I'm in Canada, so our hospital is non profit, but I think numbers from any north american hospital would be helpful.
