This book documents the social history of the emergence of doula care in the United States. Doulas use a midwifery model to understand pregnancy and birth. They believe in women's right to make informed choices regarding their health care. They advocate for patients and offer women unconditional emotional support for women's choices about their births. Birth Ambassadors explores the many dilemmas doulas face within the maternity reform movement, which seeks to empower women during and after childbirth. 393 pages
