Experienced Doula Maddie McMahon has recently written an excellent book entitled “Why doulas Matter”
It’s an easy to read concise book you will not be able to put down! The author describes the role of a doula in such a way that helps explain how a doula fits in to the modern birth story.
She shares all the varied and many reasons a mother or couple may hire a doula, and she answers the question of the title in a way that makes such sense!
Even if you read the book and still decide a doula is not for you, you will learn much for reading. In some ways, it’s like a doula in a book!
