Birth Ambassadors documents the social history of the emergence of doula care in the U.S. What are doulas and where did they come from? Why do women become doulas? Why do women want to have a doula? The only book to fully answer these questions through the lens of sociological analysis.
"Provides an articulate and thoughtful exploration of the issues facing us in childbearing care today with doulas providing a much-needed voice in the debate."
