Ina May's Guide to Childbirth

Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth

Ina May Gaskin is a world renown midwife. This guide is comprehensive and easy to read. Half of the book is made up of women’s birth stories. Not only is it about the medical aspects of birth, but it is about the power of women’s bodies and how real women think, feel, and experience childbirth.

 


Doula Resources:

House of Doula logo

House of Doula is a Denver area coop of idependent certified birth and postpartum doulas.   We work together to run and support House of Doula as an organization. House of Doula is designed to support the families in the communities we live in, as well as the professional community we work in.

We are not an agency, each doula is independently hired and paid by the families they work with.

DONA International

DONA International is a major certifying organization for doulas and has a variety of information about how to find a doula, the benefits of doulas, and what doulas do.

 

 

WOMBS.org logo

 

WOMBS also has  excellent information on doulas.

 

 


If I can’t be your doula, there are several other doulas I recommend in the Denver Metro area.
