Imagine birthing your baby exactly the way you would like – quietly and peacefully in a dim 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.  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.

In this book you will find all you need to know about:

  • choosing the right doula for you
  • what care is available
  • prenatal education
  • the stages of labour
  • conquering your fear of labour and birthing
  • the magic of hormones during birthing

Plus wonderful and inspiring stories from women and men of the wisdom and understanding that doulas bring to the experience of giving birth.

Author Susan Ross has been a midwife for more than 30 years, working in both the public and private sector, and community health.  She is also the founder and director of Birth Right, providing information, education, counseling and support to pregnant women and their partners.  Birth Right is the leading doula training school in Australia.  Susan is passionate about supporting birthing women, making sure they understand their options and choices.

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
