The midwife who opened our first birth center here in Colorado ran into a problem. Doulas who were used to "protecting” moms in hospital births were coming into her birth place and interacting in a confrontational manner with staff members. This is problematic in many ways.
I had my trusty minivan for thirteen years, and it was time to replace her (yes, I considered my car a "girl"). Moving into my new vehicle taught me a few things about what doula support is and teaching birth classes.
