What Is a Doula? Display At the end of unit I in the main course for our doula certification program, we ask students to give a presentation in their local community that discusses the role of the doula during labor and delivery. S. Addison of Clinton, Indiana, USA, shared a couple of pictures of her presentation at a local event for expectant mothers.

Below is her response to the assignment. We really enjoy it when students share their work with us. This helps to illustrate how valuable this particular project is in getting oneself established within the local community as a resource for information about pregnancy and childbirth.

For my Unit 1 project, I was able to go to a local Community Baby Shower event put on by some of our local family resource programs. I set up a table there and had a big display. I talked with about 40 different women.
