Being Born: The Doula's Role

 

by Jewel Hernandez
Illustrated by R. Michael Mithuna

 

A DOULA SUPPORTS MOM AND THE WHOLE FAMILY WHEN A BABY IS ON THE WAY

 

This children’s picture book with simple text and soft watercolors explains in friendly terms to kids and parents about the role of a doula – a healthcare professional who offers physical and emotional support to a pregnant woman and her family. Research confirms that the support of a doula throughout pregnancy optimizes a woman’s chances of having a healthier birth experience as well as a healthier newborn. This book celebrates birth – as a natural and whole-family experience. Both its text and images present the subject clearly, but in child-appropriate language. Its gentle advocacy of a doula’s role make Being Born an invaluable resource for childbirth educators to use with first pregnancies, teenage mothers, and with families for whom English is a second language. When read to younger siblings, this book will be a source of comfort to those who wonder about all the people involved when mom is “having a baby.”

 

No other child-oriented picture-book covers the subject of doulas.
