Opportunity

Doula services are not covered by many major health insurance policies despite research suggesting that births with doulas in attendance have lower rates of medical intervention and therefore lower overall costs, contributing to the tension doulas feel when collecting compensation for their services.

In the United States, fewer than 20 major health insurance companies covered doula services at the time of research, and even these companies typically only did so occasionally and by special request.
