Further Clarification on the Role of the Doula

A few weeks ago I posted a link to an article about a local couple whose baby was born in their front yard. It was a great birth story, but worried me because the couple's doula reverted to her midwife training when the baby came early. What if the article made people think all doulas check for dilation?

Apparently I wasn't the only person who heard alarm bells. Local midwife and doula trainer extrordinaire Patty Brennan wrote a to-the-point editorial in the same paper last Friday. I couldn't have said it better myself.
