Being Born by Jewel Hernandez
Book DescriptionAges 9 to 12 years. A doula is a healthcare professional who offers educational, physical, emotional and practical support to a pregnant woman -- before, during and after the birth of her child. Whether the birth takes place with a doctor in a hospital or birthing center, or at home with a midwife, a doula is always a valuable asset to any birth team. Research confirms that the support of a doula throughout pregnancy optimises a woman's chances of having a healthier birth experience as well as a healthier new-born. This is a picture book for expectant parents and their young children. It gives a warm and friendly overview of a doula's role, stressing the advantages of a doula's help. When read to younger siblings, it is a source of comfort to those who wonder about all the people involved when mum is "having a baby". This book celebrates birth -- as a natural and whole-family experience. Both its text and images present the subject clearly, but in child-appropriate language. It's simple presentation of a doula's role make this an invaluable resource for childbirth educators to use with teenage mothers and with families for whom English is a second language.
