"Birth can profoundly transform a woman, strengthen her faith,
and deepen her identity...
[A midwife or doula] knows that women who labor on their own terms and triumph in spontaneous birthing will mother in a fiercely independent fashion,
with strength and inner certainty spilling into every other aspect of their lives."
