A message from the family behind

We take great care when choosing books to recommend. Our standards are high which we hope is evident in our selection. Because of our mindful editing process, competing with mega bookstore corporations is not something we can do.

As an independent, family-owned business we genuinely appreciate the support from thoughtful customers like you. Our value, selection, service and survival depends on your careful consideration when choosing where to shop online. Thank you!

The Doula Guide to Birth - Secrets every pregnant woman should know

Here is your guide to the fastest-growing trend in childbirth—a tradition as old as motherhood itself. Doulas, or professional labor assistants, have led thousands of expectant women through the birthing process in a way that’s safe and meaningful, and that creates the birth and postbirth experience all mothers long for.

What exactly do doulas do? How to find one that suits you. What are the “trade secrets” only doulas know but every woman should be aware of (even if you don’t have a doula)?

In The Doula Guide to Birth, senior-level doula Ananda Lowe and award-winning health reporter Rachel Zimmerman have written a most comprehensive book that draws on the wisdom of these skilled experts, whose experience with doctors, midwives, nurses, and hospitals makes them invaluable advocates before, during, and after birth.

The Doula Guide to Birth includes:

  • Labor techniques anyone can use
  • Pain medication: do you, don’t you—and when?
  • What dads and loved ones need and can do best
  • When should you really go to the hospital in labor?
  • How to prepare for unexpected medical procedures, including cesareans and epidural
  • Postpartum—what it’s really like
  • A clip-out chart of labor techniques, birth plan worksheets, and much more

Combining science, wit, warmth, and support, as well as the inspirational stories
of dozens of mothers and their partners, you’ll find the “doula viewpoint” on every major pregnancy and delivery issue, making this one of the most important childbirth books you’ll ever read and recommend.

Every expectant mother deserves access to the information, wisdom, and support so lovingly and masterfully offered in this book. If I could give every mother-to-be a gift it would be The Doula Guide to Birth because reading it will give them some of the experience of how it feels to be lovingly supported by a doula."

Pam Leo, author of Connection Parenting

"Doulas play an increasingly popular and important role on the maternity scene today…The Doula Guide To Birth is a comprehensive and thoughtful book that describes exactly what doulas do, how doulas work, how they can improve your childbirth experience, and how you can incorporate a doula into your labor and delivery plans. Highly recommended to all pregnant women who wish to be fully informed about their options."
