The Path

Julie Dubrouillet - childbirth educator, author and doula

At a birth recently, the doctor asked if I’d had unmedicated births myself. I was surprised that I hesitated in answering “yes,” even though I did.

Right after the births of my children, I would have wanted to shout my accomplishment from the rooftops. And then as a inexperienced doula, I felt like everyone could and should follow the same path I did.

But over these 17 years of watching women’s experiences vary in length, in intensity, and in levels of anxiety, I now feel like it is not the avoidance or acceptance of an epidural that defines her accomplishment but the way that an expectant mom experiences her path.

My job at the end of the day is not to check the box that says “unmedicated, vaginalbirth” but to help comfort and empower all women with whom I work to make on their own best journey.

Praise for “Deliver!” from a Childbirth Educator

We just received this five star review for “Deliver!” on Amazon from childbirth educator .

“Just finished reading “Deliver!” in preparation for a childbirth class I’m teaching. As a parent educator and birth and postpartum doula, I am very impressed with the content and its concise nature. It was easy to read in one sitting and it provides a lot of information for the partner of the laboring mother, primarily, on how to ‘be with’ her during labor and birth. Well done, Julie!”

Thanks Sandra, we always appreciate feedback from prenatal professionals and our hope is that our book can be a useful addition to all those who work with expectant mothers.

Birth Story from a (repeat!) “Deliver!” Mom

“Your book and previous advice still helped us so much this time around. Thank you! I am going to make a little “pregnancy pack”, including your book, and give it to every friend who gets pregnant. ” – Julie M.

We couldn’t be more excited to hear this in an email from Julie, who recently shared with us the story of her second V-Bac. Julie is a woman of amazing determination and faith and we are so glad to have been part of helping her welcome a new member to her family.

You can read all about her latest birth on her blog. Julie says Deliver! was “succinct and easy to review again before each birth. I want to buy it for every pregnant woman.”
