From the Publisher:
In the powerful tradition of Chris Bohjalian's Midwives and Jodi Picoult's Handle With Care comes a riveting debut novel about a doula, trained to support women and their families during childbirth, on trial for her best friend's death.Raised in a funeral home, Caroline Connors saw her mother miscarry when she was just a young girl and realized that she had a calling. Unlike her family, who guide souls on their way out, Caro chose to bring them in. As a doula, Caro spent years providing comfort and emotional support to women in labor, but when her best friend, Mary Grace, experiences complications, she makes a quick decision, taking the baby's life into her hands as her lifelong friend passes away. Now, charged with medical malpractice by Mary Grace's husband, Caro must endure a trial that threatens her professional future, questions her identity as a doula and friend, and forces her to confront a dark past that she's been hiding from for years.

     In this poignant novel, Bridget Boland examines the sometimes contentious relationship between birth coaches and hospital staff and shows how a doula who intervenes during labor might save a life but then might also face medical and legal repercussions. The Doula reveals fascinating real-life elements about medical ethics, holistic medicine, and dissects the big issues about motherhood, spirituality, loyalty, and loss. It is a spellbinding, wonderful read.
