Lending Library Book List

These are some of the titles I have collected over the years. This is by no means an exhaustive list of the wonderful books out there!

Note: This is a library of books I acquired when I first started on the doula path 5+ years ago.  If you have a book you love (bonus points if written by a Person of Color, or with gender neutral language!) please tell me about it and I would be happy to add to my library!  This list is ever changing as I look to expand into hearing other voices on these subjects.

Happy Reading!!

These are linked to Amazon so that you can read a bit about them to see if they would be of interest. The asterisks denote my favorites and/or the books that are most often borrowed.  These are currently only available to my doula clients, but many can be found at the library!
