|The Doula Ring (20 Sites, 93 Hits) 01/14/2000 wr__tj
This webring includes practicing doulas and woman who desire to be a doula (also for midwives and other health care professionals who provide a service to expecting moms). This is also a great place to find professional organizations that either offer training, certification, listings, literature, and information on being a doula or getting one for your birth. Be careful of links to various work at home schemes. Some of them are scams. A doula is someone who stays with a laboring mother to help her to experience success in her birthing, and to act as an advocate if medical personnel want to go against the mother's wishes. Given today's medical climate, this can be extremely helpful, even life-saving.

|Midwifery (5 Sites, 11 Hits) 12/17/2000 wr__tj
A ring of providers and advocates for the act of childbirth as a natural life event through midwifery. For professional labor assistants (doulas), childbirth educators, and midwives. Midwifery is the practice of facilitating natural births, often at home. The best techniques involve as little intervention as possible. Women's bodies were designed to give birth. If the design is studied and respected, the outcome is far superior to that in obstetrical births. Childbirth should not be a medical event. There are a number of different kinds of midwives. Some are Certified Nurse Midwives, some are lay midwives, and there are women who have been doing midwifery in the old way for many years. This ring welcomes them all. It is a place where information can be eschanged so we can increase our skills.
