VERY easy to read. Answers a lot of questions I had!

Just what I was looking for

This book is a gem. It is short and sweet, but has exactly what I needed to get me going on the path of being a postpartum doula.

A wonderful resource for new and experienced doulas

I was very excited to find this book. Ms Kelleher has done a wonderful job of articulating her point - that postpartum doulas are NEEDED and that our work is very important. We aren't just babysitters or housekeepers, but we are nutruring women (men) who strive to make the postpartum experience easier and better for the family - the long-term results of this support are admirable! She has given us practical tips to use in our carreers, as well as some important reminders to keep us on the right track. Thank you for a wonderful resource! I look forward to taking the DONA doula training and becoming a DONA certified postpartum doula!
