A What? Doula Now in Dictionary!
Raise your hand if you’re diggin’ the Oxford English Dictionary! In June “doula” was officially entered as a word.
A woman who gives assistance and advice to a new or expectant mother, either informally or professionally; esp. a woman (typically without formal obstetric training) employed to provide guidance and continuous support during labour.
It’s about time.
Go see BIRTH this September to see how I changed the doula reference in the play!
