I am so grateful for this circle of wise women’s voices, there to give us the support we deeply need as we support other women. This is the book all doulas should have – right after learning the fundamentals of labor and delivery, and upon bravely entering today’s dramatically-changing landscape of birth.

Round the Circle puts doula mentorship in book form. It has a feeling of informality and of woman-to-woman learning in a non-hierachical setting. As a reader, you become part of the “doula circle” that Julie talks about in her introduction to the book.
