The Doula Book: How A Trained Labor Companion Can Help You Have A Shorter, Easier, And Healthier Birth
Dec 18, 2008
I thought this was a good, basic book regarding using doulas at birth. It was a nice balance of research, technique, and case examples. For anyone who's been attending births for awhile, it's fairly basic, but I still picked up a new tidbit or two (I've attended about 30 births). I would highly recommend that any grandmother, sister, or friend who is planning on attending a loved one's birth read this before the big day. It's a great primer in that regard. My criticism is that the pictures should be updated, as they will be a real turn-off to a younger generation. The cover is nice and modern, but the inside pictures make it look outdated.
