Today I will be joined by Executive Director, Michele Giordano and Director of Policy and Research, Nan Strauss of Choices in Childbirth. Last fall, CIC introduced an important piece of research. The Doula Report identifies the value of doula support in achieving critical improvements in maternity care in line with the priorities identified in the Affordable Care Act. The report examines the landscape of birth in NYC including health disparities based on race, ethnicity and income as well as challenges for doula work.
Choices in Childbirth is a non-profit organization focused on ensuring that all women have access to maternity care safe, healthy, equitable and empowering. Their mission is to promote evidence based, mother-friendly childbirth options through public education, consumer advocacy and pioneering policy reform. They seek to improve maternity care by providing the public, especially childbearing women and their families with the information necessary to make fully informed decisions relating to how, where and with whom they will give birth. www.choicesinchildbirth.org

There are so many reasons why peole dream of becoming a doula! And for many, the fear of whether they will make a "good" doula holds them back from taking that first step toward living their passions. Some of the many fears include:
* My family counts on me, how can I be gone for many hours at a time to a birth?
* I haven't had children, will anyone hire me if they feel I don't have first hand birth experience?
* I'm too young (I'm too old).
* I already have a full time job, will birth work be able to support my current income?
* What is life on call really like?
We are going to talk about all the reasons why people choose to take our training workshops, but also, what makes a good doula. Would you make a good doula? Have a listen and let's find out if you are a good fit for this life!
