A very interesting interview with a doula and childbirth educator, Lisa Gould Rubin. I don’t agree with everything she says, but what I like about her attitude is how the idea is to concentrate on the birth the woman wants, instead of scaring and guilting women into the doula’s ideal type of birth (Yes, I know all doulas claim to do that). I also appreciate her candor in admitting that having a homebirth VBAC herself, in retrospect, may not have been the wisest choice. And her taking on Lamaze, with its disgusting co-optation of the term “normal birth”.
