Ami Schmitz, Today Show medical producer, recently gave birth with the assistance of a DONA certified birth doula and wants to sing the praises of doulas and DONA International! She, along with Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC News Chief Medical Editor, will present this segment.
An expanded companion article about doulas and DONA International will be available on the Today Show web site, which will include the interviews they did with Debbie Young, current DONA president. The article should be available on Thursday, but it might be necessary to type "doula" in the search engine if it is not the top news that day.
This segment will air barring breaking news that takes precedence.
