Doulas in the Pandemic

Doulas in the Pandemic

Congratulations! Dr. Zaher Merhi was featured in the ‘Pregnancy’ section of Today Online, which went live on April 6, 2021.

In the feature entitled “’Zoom doulas’ are a pandemic trend for pregnant women,” Dr. Merhi discussed how virtual doulas have been greatly beneficial during the pandemic and how they have assisted OB-GYNs during childbirth. Dr. Merhi stated, “Labor is a strenuous act for any patient and receiving the adequate comfort during this act is crucial. The introduction of virtual doulas has been a great tool for assisting patients during labor. The support that the doula provides to the patients ends up reflecting on her in the way she progresses through labor, making our job as OB-GYNs easier.”

The feature credited Dr. Merhi as an OB-GYN based in New York City and Westport, Connecticut.
