520 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.
