Summary Imagine birthing your baby exactly the way you would like -- quietly and peacefully in a dimly lit room in absolute control of your labour and birth, feeling safe and supported. A doula can help you achieve this. Doulas are trained to look after you, both emotionally and physically, during pregnancy, labour and birthing. They empower you to negotiate the best care for you and your baby. They act as your advocate, steering you and your partner through the sometimes daunting hospital system. Or if you have chosen to have your baby at a birth centre or at home, your doula will be with you and your partner providing support, reassurance and encouragement. This book will discuss what a difference a doula can make.
Contents Every pregnant woman deserves a doula -- Why choose a doula? -- About pregnancy and choices -- Fear, and how it relates to birthing -- Hormones, let them flow! -- The role of the doula in your labour and birth -- Breastfeeding -- Helpful support during pregnancy.
Subject Doulas -- Australia.
