trend setter July 5 2008
By Vicky M. York - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was the first book I read during my doula career. In it Dana Raphael coined the word "doula" and she was referring to the woman who "tenders" the new mother so she can succeed at breastfeeding. The doula organizations have erroneously re-defined it to mean a labor doula which is a birth coach. This book has been the core of my postpartum doula practice which I have been at for 16 years now. As a postpartum doula trainer I have established this book as a required reading for students and I myself have re-read it several times to make sure I stay on track with the mission intended when Mrs. Raphael first discussed the need for this special professional. I wonder what she thinks about how the world has picked up and run with her suggestion. She never knew what a magnificent thing she did for new mothers.
