10 Questions for U.S. Doulas

Summary:
This “10 Questions for U.S. Doulas” project collected information about doula practices and thoughts mainly from 12 doulas in the U.S. There was no major contradiction in the results with the findings of existing research studies, and this study facilitated deeper understanding about unique situations of community-based doulas who serve socially disadvantaged populations. We hope that, across countries and cultures, the doulas’ passion, insights and knowledge will reach others where a doula support system like this model is needed.

Keywords: doula, community-based doulas, doula training, United States, pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, rewards, challenges, collaboration
