book and video list : LUSENET : Doula.Com General Discussion : One Thread

I have been supporting women during their labour and deliveries for about 8 years. I have some doula training. My most recent attention to a mom was June 4 - she ( and we) welcomed a beautiful daughter. I am looking for books and videos to help me in my supporting techniques.
