Summary note:
  • "As more feminism migrates online, full-spectrum doulas remain focused on life's physically intimate relationships: between caregivers and patients, parents and pregnancy, individuals and their own bodies. They are committed to supporting a pregnancy no matter the outcome-- whether it results in birth, abortion, miscarriage, or adoption-- facing the question of choice head-on. Mary Mahoney is founder and board co-chair of the Doula Project, and a key player in several reproductive justice-focused coalitions and think tanks. Lauren Mitchell is a founder of the Doula Project and co-coordinator of the Reproductive Choices Service of NYC's largest public hospital"-- Provided by publisher.
  • "Doulas focus on life's physically intimate relationships: between caregivers and patients, parents and pregnancy, individuals and their own bodies. This book combines personal narratives, medical experience, and political investigation, into an essential guide to this growing social movement."-- Provided by publisher.
