This article REALLY annoys me!


If the stories told were accurate, then these professionals did cross boundaries and were innapropriate in their conduct. An LC making recommendations regarding the care of a 33 week neonate is beyond her scope of practice. There are good and bad in every area, thats why moms should get a doula or an LC who has the appropriate training and references.

That said, I wish the NYT realizes how many women benefit from a good doula and a good LC. I am sure they will get plenty of letters disputing this article, maybe it will encourage them to write something to balance the negative protrayal they describe in this article.
