Description Normal childbirth has a high risk of causing excessive anxiety during the delivery process which can adversely affect the mother and the fetus. Besides, the long labor duration makes women even more anxious and afraid to go through the normal labor phase. However, anxiety and the duration of labor can be minimized and reduced with support and the presence of a doula during normal labor. The benefits of doula assistance during the normal delivery process are also not widely known because it is not commonly implemented in Indonesia. This study aims to prove the effect of doula assistance on anxiety and normal delivery duration. This study is a true experimental design with a Posttest Only with Control Group Design with a total sample size of 62 normal maternal mothers in the delivery room of the TK II Udayana Hospital Denpasar Bali which is divided into two. group, namely the intervention group as many as 31 people given doula assistance and a comparison group of 31 people who only provided support from their husbands. Observations and interviews were carried out immediately after delivery.
