Item Description...
More and more parents-to-be all over the world are choosing the comfort and reassuring support of birth with a trained labor companion called a "doula." This warm, authoritative, and irreplaceable guide completely updates the authors' earlier book, Mothering the Mother, and adds much new and important research. In addition to basic advice on finding and working with a doula, the authors show how a doula reduces the need for cesarean section, shortens the length of labor, decreases the pain medication required, and enhances bonding and breast feeding. The authors, world-renowned authorities on childbirth with combined experience of over 100 years working with laboring women, have made their book indispensable to every woman who wants the healthiest, safest, and most joyful possible birth experience.A Merloyd Lawrence Book

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not a great pregnancy book  May 19, 2008
I read this book while I was pregnant, because it was recommended. I can't say that I figured out why it was recommended. Many folks have commented that it was a great book for those studying to be a doula, but I wasn't.

If you are attempting a natural child birth in a hospital, hire a doula. She lowers your risks for numerous interventions. However, that can be said in one sentence and backed up with a few paragraphs.
bought it new, perfect condition. Shipped quickly.  Feb 27, 2008
Currently going through birth doula certification through DONA, this is one of the required reads.
A must read for Doulas  Jan 19, 2008
I am a Doula and I found this book to be very informative and very essential for my profession. I love the fact that the whole book is based on researches data and have some useful suggestions for doulas. However, I did find the book hard to read because most of the information is dry, "not very exciting". If you are a doula or if you want to know why having a doula is so beneficial I would recommend you to read this book and I'm positive it will answer most of your questions about the benefits of a doula.
Great!  Dec 29, 2007
This is a great book, whether you're studying to be a doula or your thinking about using a doula for your birth!
too many studies  Oct 19, 2007
The book over all was very informative however there were way too many " studies" listed in the book if I just wanted strait graph's and comparisons of doula vs. non doula assisted births I would have looked for them online somewhere. and the pictures really need updated. The book seemed more like a giant 240 page sales pamphlet on why you should hire a doula.
