A doula is an experienced labor companion who provides continuous emotional support and assistance before, during, and after birth. Through years of research, first reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, the authors have shown that the presence of a doula shortens first-time labor, decreases cesarean sections and the need for pain medication, helps fathers participate with confidence, and leads to more successful breast-feeding.
In this clear, helpful guide, the distinguished authors show all expectant parents how to achieve these vital benefits.
Both the text and Suzanne Arms's stunning photographs reveal what continuous emotional support actually means at each stage of childbirth. The book clarifies the relationship of a doula to the doctor, the nurse, and above all to fathers, who have found their role enormously strengthened by the support of the doula. Chapters on what to look for in a doula, and on how to find one, make Mothering the Mother a book no expectant parent should be without.
