As a Doula our job is to help and to support women in an educated and unbiased way through their pregnancies, childbirth and postpartum. And, the best advice that we can give to each other is to continue getting educated and gaining more knowledge, because knowledge is the most powerful tool that we can use to advocate for ourselves. 

Although the following points are from the video made by Rebecca Dekker, PhD nurse and the Founder of Evidence Based Birth®, I encourage you to watch the complete video:
