"Breathe... Breathe..."

A bunch of our friends just had babies,* and more than one used a doula. I'm inspired and have decided to hang up my shingle as a:
dude·la
n.
  1. A doula for dudes.
I'll help freaked out newbie dads develop their personal birth plan and provide emotional and physical support during the birth process: "Okay, don't forget to breathe. Breathe... Breathe... Very good. Now remember your birth plan: contractions every five minutes, time for your second double martini. Easy, okay... Don't forget the olive. You need your electrolytes. No, no, don't pass out. Now smile and tell her she looks radiant. You're doing great..."

* Yay! Go babies!
