Men At Birth - First Male Doula Certified by DONA

"Keith Roberts is unfazed by the attention given him as the first man to be certified as a doula by DONA. He has has spent over 30 years in the field of holistic care, specifically focusing on pregnancy massage therapy and birth support for the last fourteen. The prenatal massage work he does was a segue to following one mother right into labor where he found expert massage therapy was extremely beneficial to her in labor. She was the first of fifteen more mothers he supported in labor before he determined to pursue certification as a doula."

This is a really interesting article about a male doula, and how he feels his support in labor is so helpful. The article also lists some really good advice for expectant parents.
