Here’s a great article that gives an explanation of what each of these professions do. I’m always surprised at how many people don’t know what the difference is between a doula and a midwife but equally excited when people do 🙂
I was one of those that had NO CLUE about midwives or doulas and didn’t do any research to find out. Until I had both my babies, the second leaving me feeling very unpleasant and didn’t really know why until I saw, Business of Being Born.
Now, my mission in life is to contribute to having every woman know what her body is capable of, what is being done to us that doesn’t need to be and finding their truth for themselves and their babies.
