“The history of birth in the US has taken women from their homes and from the care of midwives and female support into isolation. In hospitals there is a rising rate of medical procedures and interventions that prevent women from learning how powerful they really are. Doulas help women reclaim the strength and beauty that birth has to offer.” Abby Bordner, CAPPA Labor Doula Faculty
