A great book for pregnant women and doulas alike. I am a doula and have enjoyed The Doula Guide to Birth immensely. full of insider's wisdom.

A great book for pregnant women and doulas alike. Even thought I've attended nearly 400 births, I found some tips that were new to me and very useful :) Very thorough and well written. tracy hartley B E S T Doula Service. I actually spent alot of time going "Hmmmm" and "oh I didnt know that!" and "thank goodness!" I want to have a natural childbirth, hopefully in a birthing center, but I am not ruling out hiring a Doula and this guide is for really, every woman considering getting pregnant or pregnant already.

I love Mercedes
Maybe it's just met, but the title "the Doula Guide to Birth" was a bit misleading to me. I got the book because I'm in school to be a CNM and wanted to get a better idea of things that doula's were learning to prepare for births. Instead, this book is 100% geared towards pregnant women who are on the fence about hiring a doula (hence the smaller text that I didn't pay attention to "secrets every pregnant woman should know"). Oh well. Guess I'll keep it for the day I have a baby ;)

I bought this book at 5 months pregnant with my first child. I wasn't planning to have a doula at my birth, but I really wanted a natural birth and wanted to get a take on what doula's provide and what advice I could glean from their approach. The book was one of the most informative books I've seen on what birth can be like both in and out of a hospital and the options available to women. What I loved was how, while it was definitely constantly selling the benefits of having a doula, this book gave plenty of useful advice for women not planning to use one. I personally can feel put-off by language that is too touchy-feely or focuses on things like goddess imagery of womanhood, but this book definitely did not seem to try to force one single view of birth or imagery around the experience. This is an extremely practical guide that balances affirming messages about the birth experience with summaries of the most recent research on how different techniques and procedures affect birth outcomes. It was eye-opening to see how little of the research on what gets the best birth outcomes ever gets incorporated into regular hospital procedures, and it was reassuring to get advice and tools on how to advocate for myself in any setting. The book's tone was never alarmist or judgmental and addresses itself to a wide audience. It is inclusive enough to offer support for women of diverse cultures, religions, viewpoints, and family situations. It addresses teens, LGBT families, single moms, mothers on both sides of surrogacy and adoption, women with past traumas and husbands and other partners, family members or support people. I found all of this book extremely helpful in my preparation for birth and really reassuring to read. I'll try to add to this review after I've given birth, but just in terms of reassurance and advice while still pregnant, the two books I'd rate as the most helpful to me are this and Ina May's Guide to Childbirth.

I really enjoyed this book and found the writing style knowing, but not overly conversational. The information was arranged well and I could see this book being easy to navigate should I want a refresher on any if the main topics. My one minor complaint is that there was little information geared toward second-time moms. Understandably, the info tends to focus on the "newness" of it all. That said, I did find plenty of thoughtful viewpoints to consider and would happily recommend this book.

I am a first time pregnant mom-to-be and a trained Doula and I have to say this book is wonderful for both! If you are into the natural birthing process and considering having a Doula present, this book is a must read! It helps the mom know what to expect and how to approach birth in a more positive way then the way society views it (as a scary event). It gives a lot of great advice to first time mom's that I highly recommend they read. Also, I'm passing this book on to my Doula next because it's a great, easy read with pertinent information. It even has information on adoption because not all mom-to-be's give birth, so I like that it touches on that topic a little.

This book met my expectations. It was a good and easy read. Very informative, especially for those looking to become a doula.
This is a great and helpful book. It is true, every pregnant woman should read this. There are not enough books out there advocating for drug free, natural births.
