Lesley Everest works like a slave. No really. She's a doula -- a word derived from the ancient Greek word "doule", literally meaning "female slave". She provides non-medical support to women before, during and after labour. So getting screamed at or puked on at work is pretty normal for Lesley.
Lesley has been helping women give birth as a doula for almost two decades in Montreal. This month she even heads to Alberta to offer a training course in Edmonton.
She talks about the work of a doula with Geeta Nadkarni (who confesses to having a vested interest in babies these days!).
