I'm so pleased that I read this book. It has 22 essays on a broad range of focus areas and special topics within doula work. Each one was really intriguing and so valuable, it is very challenging to select a few to highlight. I loved getting more insight on a doula's scope of practice, supporting families in cesarean birth, honoring spiritual practices, supporting LGBTQA parents, friends as clients, growing a doula business, and ideas for working with underserved populations such as immigrant, i ...more

I could not put this down. Granted I am a doula geek/nerd, but I felt like all these people were sharing their experiences with me. Great!

As a very new doula trainee, this book was eye opening and incredibly helpful. It introduced me to perspectives and challenges to becoming a doula that I had not previously considered, and provided clear and extremely helpful pieces of advice encompassing all areas of being a doula, from how to navigate ideological preferences of clients to how to successfully market yourself, and everything in between. The essay style of the book helps to deliver concise advice across many topics in a way that ...more

As a strictly hospital doula, a lot of the chapters in this book really had nothing to do with me; but even those chapters had great advice. I think this is such a good book for new doulas who are figuring out their responsibility, their scope, their boundaries, and how to take care of themselves. These are things you learn as you become more experienced in your work, but I don't remember being taught these in training. This is a small book that's easy to read and understand, and a valuable reso ...more
