Doulas' Guide to Birthing Your Way

Doulas’ Guide to Birthing Your Way contains a wealth of information for pregnant women and their partners.”
From the foreward written by John M Kennell, MD
Pediatrician, co-author of Bonding and Mothering the Mother


Doulas’ Guide to Birthing Your Way is written for you, the mother, and your doula if you have one. It will lead you step-by-step through the birth process, so you’ll know what to expect. Whether this is your first child or you are an experienced mother, The Doulas’ Guide will be your guide to giving birth your way.

You will learn:
• How to build a birth team that supports you
• How to write a Birth Vision that reflects your priorities
• The ten things that must be in your birth bag
• Tips, tool and techniques to help you have the easiest birth you can have
• Ways to avoid a cesarean birth or how to accomplish a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean)
• How to get breastfeeding off to a good start
• The best ways to avoid postpartum depression


Giving birth is something you’ll remember the rest of your life. Knowing what to expect and having a birth vision will help you take control of your birth and make educated decisions should the need arise.

ILCA Print and Multimedia Reviews August 2010 – Available at www.ILCA.org Doulas’ Guide to Birthing Your Way Jan S Mallak and Teresa F Bailey Hale Publishing, LP, 2010 192 pages, illustrated, shaded text boxes, bibliography, glossary, index, (US)$19.95, softcover Orders: Hale Publishing 1712 N. Forest Street, Amarillo, TX 79106 USA Tel: 800-376-9900 URL: www.hale-publishing.com or www.ibreastfeeding.com When the laboring mother loses her way and her partner tires, the doula is by her side. Doulas are ready to encourage, explain, offer pain management techniques and anything else to help the laboring mother carry out her birth vision. This refreshing book is written to help women plan for their birth by sharing "tips, tools and techniques” toward giving birth with confidence. It combines the knowledge and experience of both authors who are La Leche League Leaders and DONA certified doulas. The authors describe five interwoven ways doulas offer support through spiritual, mediatorial, physical, emotional, and informational guidance. Mothers are encouraged to think in terms of having a birth vision rather than a birth plan. They suggest that while a woman cannot plan her birth, she can envision it. The “blessing way,” a celebration of a woman’s pregnancy with close family and friends, is discussed in details not typically included in other books about doulas. The authors have met their goal in giving practical and easy-to-use tips by providing the reader with numerous supplementary materials. Included are visual exercises, quizzes, tables, and charts to help support the learning and make it easy to carry suggestions out. There is also a postpartum emergency information sheet, handout for postpartum helpers, postpartum depression checklist, several excellent birth vision examples, and great tips on how to survive the first few weeks postpartum. The 14 pages on basic breastfeeding offer accurate information overall. Pregnant mothers, doulas, and lactation consultants alike will enjoy this well-written and well-priced book for all the practical advice and accurate information it offers to women in preparation for birth.
