1.0 out of 5 stars One of the few books I have ever returned, July 27, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Doula Book: How A Trained Labor Companion Can Help You Have A Shorter, Easier, And Healthier Birth (Paperback)
I bought this book because I am interested in having someone with me during my labor who can provide some of the "warm fuzzies" and constant attention that perhaps my OB and nursing staff cannot. What I found in this grossly outdated book was a clear statement against pain medication during labor, likening it to a "non-birth." It was when I saw that statement, coupled with other, unfounded, horror stories about epidurals that I realized I had come across an extreme political perspective (much like the abortion debate) as opposed to a well-rounded, informative and soothing description of what a doula can offer. If I were a doula, I would be horrified by what I hope is a very narrow minded opinion of their work.
