Is it possible that a doula’s vision of a joyful birth could be quite different than what the clients consider joyful? In this breakout we will explore our own preconceived notions about what factors make for a joyful birth, consider alternatives, and develop skills to put mother’s needs for a positive birth experience above our own.
