Birth Ambassadors tells the the "other" side of the maternal health story in America. For the last 30 years the maternal health care system in American has become a model that relies on technology and largely disempowers women at it's best, while poorly serving them at it's worst. Thankfully, along the way, a small army has been evolving to provide an alternative to this discouraging trend - enter birth doulas. Christine Morton has written an amazing book that gives us a picture of maternal health in the last 30 years through the eyes of a group of women who have stood up and stated 'there is another way to bring humans in to our world and I'm going to support birthing-women in this endeavor.' These women acknowledge that birth can be a powerful rite of passage in a woman's life with much to be gained if a birthing woman is truly supported on her path. BIRTH AMBASSADORS is a must read for any doula, childbirth educator, midwife, or birth scholar.
