  A total of 10 hospitals in southwest China’s Chongqing Municipality was officially recognized by China Women's Development Foundation (CWDF) as implementer of the Doula Service for Childbirth program at a ceremony held at a maternity & child healthcare hospital in the city on November 5, 2014.
  The Doula Service for Childbirth program, which was officially introduced by CWDF in Chongqing during September 2013, aimed to organize medical practitioners and female volunteers who have experience in childbirth to better assist pregnant women in the process of natural delivery via professional equipment and techniques.
 
  “The program has greatly reduced the number of C-section operations amongst local expectant mothers, created employment opportunities, and helped more underprivileged women have equal access to medical resources,” said Qin Guoying, vice-president and secretary-general of CWDF.
  She added that local medical institutes and doctors should better implement the program and better serve needy women during childbirth.
  For their part, local practitioners in the program gave their pledge to offer qualified services for pregnant women during natural delivery.By November 2014, CWDF had donated 20 sets of equipment connected with the program to 12 hospitals, helped nearly 3,000 women in childbirth, and produced employment opportunities for 60 jobless women. More specifically, over half of pregnant women chose natural delivery at those hospitals.
  The event drew the attendance of Zhou Dexun, vice-president of Chongqing Women’s Federation; presidents of local women’s federations at county-level, and medical practitioners from local hospitals.
