You've heard about women who've had a doula present at their birth and you wonder, are they really worth it?  Do they make that much of a difference?  Isn't a doula doing the same thing your nurse in the hospital or your midwife is doing?  What do they really provide?  Tune in to hear (lesbian) doula Ashley Severino share why having a doula at your birth may be exactly what you want.  Ashley will share about a doula's training, the support they offer before, during and after labor and will help you decide if hiring a doula is right for you.

Ashely is a birth and labor doula, holistic health practioner and certified prenatal massage therapist at Embracing Labor in San Diego (www.embracinglabor.com).  Find out more about her at http://ashley.embracinglabor.com/.
