Doulas are natural information-seekers (and information-sharers!), and perhaps the primary way we educate ourselves is by reading books. Lots and lots of books. Though I’m still early in my doula-ing journey, I’ve already discovered a number of favorites which I recommend as bedside-table standards to my clients and friends. Here they are, in no particular order:
The Pregnancy Book by Dr. & Martha Sears
I’m Pregnant! Now What Do I Eat? by Hope Ricciotti (This was my go-to resource for balanced recipes and meal suggestions in my own pregnancy. I still make the Roasted Provencal Vegetables on a regular basis. They are fabulous on homemade pizza.)
I’d love to hear your favorites. Happy reading!
