So DH is resistant to the idea of hiring a doula for this birth, and I'd like to give him an article or two to read about the role of a doula and why it's a good idea.  Any recommendations?  Thanks mamas!

the DONA website has an article about Dad's and Doulas.http://www.dona.org/PDF/DadsandDoulas.pdf

 As a doula, I emphasize that in no way is my job to take away from the partners job.  Really, a good doula will allow the partner to help the mother better than he thought he could- moving his hands into the right place, suggesting positions, etc.
