Look what I came across today – a lovely review of Birth Space from all the way across the water – thank you Angel’s Kiss!
“I love Adela’s book.
Gentle Birth Companions captures the heart, passion and sacred path that doulas hold in supporting women and their families through out time. The perfect blend of her-story with science, showing the doulas role and importance today as she helps us re-discover the value of female companionship during childbirth. If you are pregnant, thinking of hiring a doula, becoming a doula or are involved in maternity care today, Adela’s book is essential to help you reconnect the circle of support in childbirth that provides an essential ingredient for a safe, fulfilling birth experience.”

She truly captures the essence of what I have always hoped readers might glean from this wee book – thank you!
What is Support?
Not judging, not telling your own story
Support is not offering advice …
Although written as if for mothers, if we replace the word ‘women’ for ‘men’, it becomes a poem for fathers too.
